Recycled textiles

Sheridan has launched a tea towel made of recycled yarns. The ReThread Tea Towel (pictured) is crafted from recycled cotton and polyester fibres, helping to divert textile waste from landfill. The homewares brand has also extended its recycling program across all 56 of its factory outlet stores, after the ongoing success of the program since its boutique store launch in February. The program, which encourages customers to return pre-loved bed linen and towels, has collected over 3,150kg of textiles, which is broken down into recycled cotton and repurposed into new products.

Sheridan ReThread Tea Towel $19.95 set of 3; available to purchase in store or on the Sheridan website.
