Please excuse our trash talk

Evolving the fashion ecosystem to be more sustainable requires us to uphold our standards at every step of our product lifecycle- including its end life. When an item leaves our warehouse- even after you've worn it a gazillion times, slept in it, traveled in it, spilled on it, laughed in it, cried in it- it's still our responsibility. We created a circularity program so you never give up on your MATE.

Once a MATE, forever a MATE

Our process involves a mechanical recycler that chops and shreds fiber until it can be respun into new yarn. Then, we are able to blend the different fiber scraps into our signature earthy tones, so we eliminate the need to use water and energy to dye the recycled fabric.

Approximately 85% of all textiles end up in landfills or incinerated

Waste from the fasion industry has ballooned 220% since the 1990s but recycling has not increased at nearly the same rate.

Why REMATE?

Sourcing organic cotton from recycled MATE items rather than producing conventional cotton reduces carbon emissions by 71%.
