Abstract

Recycling process in textile industry plays a significant role in order to move closer to a zero landfill society. Hence, the textile waste from garment industry is used in this project which was sorted out by color. These color sorting requires no re-dying process, saves energy and avoid pollutants. Garment cutting waste collected from industry was grinded into fibers and developed into yarn. This recycled yarn of 20’s count, virgin yarn of cotton, viscose and polyester of same color and count is used for comparison. As the recycled yarn has less strength for producing fabric, the yarn was doubled with virgin yarns. To compare the properties of doubled yarn with virgin yarn, the virgin cotton yarn of 20s count was also doubled with virgin viscose and polyester yarn. Then the woven fabrics were produced with twill weave structure from both the virgin and recycled doubled yarn. Fabric properties of all the samples were analyzed before constructing the garment. Due to the heaviness of the yarn as it is doubled, these fabrics are suitable for the construction of denim garments and hence the denim skirts were constructed from the woven fabrics. Combination of recycled cotton shows almost equal results as like the combination of virgin cotton & polyester.
