Why 100 % recycled threads?
The quality of our recycled sewing threads is comparable to our non-recycled ones, making them a viable alternative to our traditional thread assortment. Our 100 % recycled thread assortment is REACH compliant as well as certified according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 and the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
High tear resistance
Recycling is a process of reusing raw materials - the material has therefore already been used once. Nevertheless, our recycled products are in no way inferior to the original materials in terms of quality. Mara rPET offers the best sewing properties and tear resistance, which are on a par with non-recycled thread.
Color comparison Mara rPET vs. Mara
Like our original products, we also offer our threads made from recycled polyester in a wide range of colours. The recycled raw material is darker than the non-recycled material. Thanks to our dyeing expertise, however, the colour difference in the dyed thread is minimal.
