Contact us to know more about recycled fabric


Do you know what is your swimwear and sportswear made of? The answer might surprise you. The new and innovative ways to produce stylish swimwear and sportswear that are kinder to the environment than their nylon or polyester forebears. There are bottles,old fishing nets, and even ocean waste being repurposed to make sustainable swimwear. We source our recycled fabric from post-consumer water bottles.

Many factories selling recycled fabric will use brand-new bottles rather than post-consumer bottles. Why? It is cheaper to do this. We wanted to make garments without destroying the planet.  

The post-consumer bottles are prewashed and cleaned of any trash and debris. They then go through a sorting machine where beams of light detect and sort them by either green or clear plastic. They then have a hot soapy bath that is just warm enough to get rid of any labels and caps.

The bottles are then ground into flake-sized pieces. They have then washed again, dried and heated to eliminate any contaminants. They then take the form of small pellets.

The small pellets are delivered to our spinning mill. They are heated once more to turn them into super fine threads and spun together with the yarn which makes it way to our knitting factory

The process uses 85% less energy to produce than most other garments

It produces 50% less CO2 emissions

 

Ponder this: for every 16-18 PET bottles we can make one pair of leggings.

Well drink to that!
