Marks & Spencer launches recycled wool suit
Marks & Spencer has launched a men’s suit made from a recycled wool blend.
The lightweight, single breasted suit is made with 55% recycled wool including wool that M&S customers have donated in stores through the retailer’s Shwopping clothes recycling initiative with Oxfam.
The wool was woven into the suit fabric at Nova Fides, a 50 year old family-run mill based in Prato in Italy, before being crafted into the ‘Shwop’ suit.
The suit is available online and in stores in five colours and is priced at £149. A three-piece option is also on offer.
David Gandy, M&S ambassador of tailoring, said: “As my new role as ambassador of tailoring at M&S, I’m proud to talk about the fact that 80% of the new tailoring collection will be made with wool. My favourite item this season is actually made with recycled wool that uses items donated through our Shwopping initiative.”
