Older Ruttloff jeans are disassembled and their fibers are recovered.


In addition to recycling our fabric scraps, we also accept older products from our manufactory to recover the cotton. Before this can happen, all metallic elements must be removed by hand so as not to damage the shredder. The process is still being developed and is scheduled to go into operation in 2025. For more information, see the article ZW-PROJECT. This recycles older cotton as a valuable resource and thus reduces the climate impact compared to new cotton. Customers receive 10% off a new pair of Ruttloff jeans from our collections in case of return.


During the cutting process there are fabric remnants whose high cotton quality I would like to preserve. The offcuts will be collected, shredded and woven back into fabric internally by 2025 at the latest.
