Trans-Americas is the leading global supplier of recycled clothing, vintage clothing and household textiles. In business since 1942, our company recycles 140,000 garments daily; enabling us to supply large quantities of reclaimed clothing for designers and manufacturers. If your designs include recycled garments for remakes, construction or trimming, Trans-Americas is your resource for remade fashion. Our plant is located 12 miles from New York City in Clifton, NJ.
As the eco-fashion market grows, so does the use of recycled clothing. Utilizing recycled garments is significantly more cost effective than incorporating new textiles containing post-consumer textile waste.
Remade fashions leave a carbon footprint dramatically smaller than that created by producers of new textiles.
Remade fashions have been worn for decades. Cutting-edge sustainable fashion can be constructed by using recycled clothing. From altering vintage pieces to trimmings and linings, utilizing recycled clothing is chic and eco-friendly. In this example, a skirt was used to create a cape. By simply adding armholes, a front pocket and a button, this outdated skirt was transformed.
