Clothing giants H&M and Puma are hoping to prove the value of a new recycling technology that can separate individual fibres and dyes from old clothes.

The new partnership announced today will see Puma owner Kering and H&M use a technology developed by East London start-up Worn Again that aims to reduce the millions of tonnes of cotton and polyesters produced each year.
