The textile industry is huge in west and that’s why the discarded clothes they ship to India and Africa are of next to no cost. All you have to pay is the shipping cost for these used clothes. Though the recycling market has been down, Jaideep’s family has been transforming these garments into yarns for decades. And they believe that a little innovation and passion can reverse all trends.

They have sixty employees in Mumbai right now who turn and sew used clothes into designer bags. In fact, a lot of their bags have a tagline – “I am not a virgin” to indicate that it is recycled.

Currently, they produce around 15 lakh bags every year and the price varies from Rs 20 to Rs 400. Now, that’s something to take inspiration from, The Wall Street Journal Reported.
