SOEX Recycled Clothing

Ask A Merchant is proud to present SOEX, an environmentally-conscious company with many locations throughout the world. Soex is dedicated to recycling clothing. Soex processes about 300 million pounds of clothing each year, all while helping preserve natural resources such as water.

The process of recycling at Soex begins with their Re-Wear, Re-Use, and Re-Cycle programs. The Re-Wear program includes clothing that is in good condition and may still be worn. However, some clothing articles cannot be re-worn. In such cases, Soex may not alter them, but sell them to developing nations that can Re-Use them for new purposes. Items that fall under the Re-Cycle category, moreover, are often transformed into new products such as mattress padding and insulation for automobiles, homes, and offices.

In addition to recycling clothing, Soex continually strives to achieve its goal of producing Zero Waste emissions. For additional information regarding Soex and their recycled products, visit your local Portland clothing store or check out the SOEX Website.

Premium Denim Jeans

Marc, a denim expert who runs Marc Allison Jeans was asked to come up with a new idea in denim and he traveled back in his mind to the days when sold knit fabrics, knits stretch in two directions, denim stretches naturally in one direction. What if we could get denim to stretch like a knit? And then he added Supima cotton to make it luxurious and there you have premium denim jeans for real.
