We’ve teamed up with Urban Outfitters to explore the world of fabrics in a series called Fabric First, diving deep into materials and textures that are season- and style-appropriate right now. 

So far we’ve taken a deep dive on fleece, denim, flannel, and corduroy, each of which is a material central to the modern wardrobe, but in 2020, no fabrics are as important or relevant as a recycled fabric. In recent years we’ve seen recycled textiles move to the forefront of fashion as labels find more and more innovative ways to create and incorporate them.

What’s more, filling your wardrobe with recycled fabric is no longer such an arduous searching task. With big names like The North Face, Patagonia, and more looking to recycled materials on a consistent basis, shopping recycled is getting easier.

With the help of Urban Outfitters, we’ve rounded up nine products that show the length and breadth of the world of recycled fabric right now, from sub-zero outerwear to retro denim and streetwear.
