ReSpiin is a homeware brand that has been created to showcase stylish recycled and renewable textiles. 

It has been exciting to see the developments in sustainable textiles over the last few years, and we felt it was time to bring together some of the most innovative materials under one brand. Each material we use has a story to tell - whether that is about the way it grows or the journey it has been on. 

ReSpiin is also about working directly with pioneering producers who add the most value possible to the materials they have to work with. We have visited each of the producers and have seen first hand how they take pride in what they produce and in how they treat their workforce.

The ReSpiin cushions and throws are made from recycled wool. 

Unwanted clothing is collected through recycling programmes around the world, and shipped back to India for sorting and reworking. Although initially, this seems a long way for the clothing to travel, it is actually an advantage for the many container ships returning to India to have some weight on board.

Once it arrives in India the clothing is sorted into fabric type and colour. Our supplier uses wool and wool mix clothing only and the resulting fabric is a minimum of 65% wool, 35% other fibres (usually polyester and nylon). The clothing is cleaned, broken down, made into fibres, spun into yarn and then woven into a fabric. The fabric colour is a result of the original wool fabrics - no dyes are added.

Our supplier is an SA8000 certified organisation. The SA8000 standard is one of the worlds first auditable social certification standards for decent workplaces. It sets out the requirements to be met by organisations, including the establishment or improvement of workers rights, workplace conditions and an effective management system. Audits are carried out annually. They are also compliant with ISO:9001:2008 quality management system standards.

We also sell cushion pads which are made especially for us using Recron® Eco-Friendly Fibrefill. This filling is made from 100% Post consumer PET bottles and complies with Global Recycle Standard (GRS) norms. The cover is made from polypropylene. These are shrink wrapped for easy shipment.
