Did you know that your old jeans could become a shoe, a car part or even a brick? It's entirely possible, thanks to the recycling of textile products. France is one of Europe's pioneers when it comes to sorting and collecting clothes to give them a second life. Laetitia Limmois followed the journey of a pair of jeans being transformed into something new.

This programme by French broadcaster France.tv Slash is part of the European Collection, a joint initiative from European public service media (ARD, ARTE, France Télévisions, SRG SSR, RTBF and ZDF), coordinated by ARTE.
