FASHION label Ralph Lauren is collaborating with a recycling programme for old, no longer wearable cashmere.

Consumers living in Britain, the European Union and the US can obtain a printable, postage-paid label from the Ralph Lauren website so they can send unwanted, 100 per cent cashmere items from any brand to be recycled.

The discarded woollies go to Re-Verso in Tuscany (Italy) which recycles yarns and fabrics subsequently used by fashion companies that include Stella McCartney.

Some fast-fashion companies now offer textile recycling, although there is uncertainty regarding the clothes’ destination, and they increasingly use recycled materials but this is the first time that a designer label has embraced large-scale recycling efforts.
