Kongkiat has worked with so many brands and garment manufacturers. In this example project, we worked with a Japanese brand and sock maker. They sent us the B-grade sock. Kongkiat converted all those socks into fiber then we made yarns that use 20% of recycled material. Finally, Kongkiat sold the yarn back to that sock maker to make new socks with recycled material. The brand can declare that this project is a real closed loop of recycling material which helps reduce waste from the supply chain.
B grade socks
These are socks that cannot be used and waiting to be destroyed according to brand policy.
Kongkiat converted those socks into fiber that is ready to be spun in our spinning mill.
