The End of Trash - Circular Economy Solutions #7
Newly recycled wool fibre dries in a textile facility in Prato, Italy. A wet shredding technique is used to strip the wool and turn rags back into fibre that can then be spun into thread to produce fine fabrics. Discarded clothing is a source of pollution worldwide. Prato has long been a model of innovation in the textile sector, having historically made its industrial fortune on the reuse of second-hand clothing from all over the world.

أليافٌ من الصوف أُعيد تدويرها حديثاً تُترك لتجفّ في منشأة للنسيج في براتو، إيطاليا. يتمّ استخدام تقنية التقطيع الرطب لنزع الصوف وتحويل الخرق إلى ألياف من جديد ليتمّ بعد ذلك لفّها في خيوط لإنتاج أقمشةٍ ناعمة. تُعتبر الملابس المُهملة مصدراً للتلوث في أنحاء العالم. لطالما اعتُبرت مدينة براتو نموذجاً للابتكار في قطاع النسيج حيث استندت ثروتها الصناعية تاريخياً إلى إعادة استخدام الملابس المستعملة من أنحاء العالم.
