Stella McCartney has debuted the world’s first fully recyclable hoodie, one of two prototype products for her adidas collection.
The “Infinite Hoodie” is composed of 60 per cent NuCycl™ fibre, a material made using the threads from old garments, and 40 per cent organic cotton that has been diverted from landfills.
Made in partnership with textile innovations company Evrnu, the hoodie is designed to be reused and remade in the future.
In a statement, Stella McCartney says: “Fashion is one of the most harmful industries to the environment. We can’t wait any longer to search for answers and alternatives.
“By creating a truly open approach to solving the problem of textile waste, we can help empower the industry at large to bring more sustainable practices into reality.
“With adidas by Stella McCartney we’re creating high performance products that also safeguard the future of the planet.”
Fans of the company may struggle to get their hands on the design given that only 50 Infinite Hoodies have been manufactured to date.
