Edgy uses recycled cotton T-shirt fabric which has been braided into 3mm, 5mm and 9mm cords.
Edgy uses a braided cotton cord made from recycled T-shirt fabric. The scraps are imported from both landfill and production waste sites to a small factory in Poland where they are spun into braided cords.
The production waste is then passed on to local zero-waste initiatives.
The textiles are cut into smaller pieces and then shredded – it is at this stage that the colour is created. The shredded cotton is mixed in specific proportions in order to achieve the desired shade. The fibres are then spun into braided cords. No water or toxic chemicals are used in the production process, therefore saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions.
All cords received an Oeko-Tex Certificate Standard 100 in first class. It means they were tested at every production level and do not contain any substances that are harmful for our health. They may be safely used in products for toddlers and anyone with allergies.
The granted certificate guarantees that the products are free from harmful substances such as pesticides, chlorophenols, formaldehyde, allergenic dyes, forbidden azo dyes and extractable heavy metals.
