Arvin Goods, the Seattle, WA-based responsible apparel brand, released its latest sock collection, made from Recover recycled cotton fiber. 

Since launching in 2019, the company’s mission has been to be at the forefront of sustainable fashion, using recycled materials for its collections. The company actively partners with those who share their commitment to protecting the environment. 

The latest launch features crew socks made from 79 percent recycled materials, including 43 percent recycled polyester and 36 percent Recover recycled cotton fiber. 

Arvin Goods reported that “Recover’s proprietary recycled fiber is one of the lowest-impact fibers in the market, significantly reducing the carbon and water footprint of the apparel supply chain. Manufacturing one pair of Arvin Goods socks made with 36 percent Recover fiber saves up to 18 gallons of water compared to a pair made with conventional cotton.”

Boris Mercier, SVP of Marketing at Recover, a fourth-generation, family-owned company, said, “Our ongoing work with Arvin Goods was born out of a shared belief in the importance of circular fashion that never sacrifices quality, feel, or style. As the ingredient brand of reference in recycled cotton, we aim to educate consumers to make more conscious choices and accelerate the adoption of sustainable initiatives within the casual wear segment.”

As well as using low-impact recycled materials, the company prioritizes the value chain. Due to Recover’s strategic partnership with Ferre Yarns, a fourth-generation family business with a history of more than 75 years manufacturing recycled yarns, based locally in Alicante, Spain, Alvin Goods also minimizes transportation.

Dustin Winegardner, managing partner at Arvin Goods, commented“We have been working with Recover and the Ferre family of yarns since the beginning of Arvin Goods. Making it official like this and stamping the R on our packaging is an exciting step for our brand. Being able to source materials in Spain and manufacture nearby in Portugal moves us further in our mission to deliver The Cleanest Basics on the Planet.”

Paqui Ferre, sales and marketing director at Ferre, also commented, “Ferre has been working with Arvin Goods since the beginning of its history. In a clear commitment to sustainability, Arvin makes products using our most iconic yarn, FBlue. Consistent with our brand vision, FBlue 100 percent recycled yarns deliver the perfect combination of circularity, performance and color accuracy. A blend with Recover recycled cotton that answers the global call for sustainably sourced yarns while providing inspiring colors for Arvin Goods products.”
