What we call a "Re-source fabric" is a leftover surplus fabric that has not been used. By sewing a hat or cap from a leftover fabric contribute to sustainability and circular flows in the textile industry, by using the resources available instead of producing new fabrics.
The hats and caps where we use Re-Source fabrics is an excellent environmental choice as it is made of leftover fabrics that do not go to waste.
We work with the company Rekotex in Borås, Sweden. Rekotex is a company that is offering surplus fabrics from fashion companies to other textile companies.
To measure the hat size, wrap a tape measure around the head just above the ears. The tape should fit comfortably – not too tight. Round up to the nearest size.
If you have no tape measure, you can measure with a string, which you then measure with a ruler.
