RECYCLED POLYESTER COLLECTION

RECYCLED POLYESTER COLLECTION

Vittel, Badoit and Evian are our recycled polyester collections available now. Developed by material innovators, recycled polyester is a technical fabric made from upcycled plastic bottles that otherwise would end up in landfills and the ocean. These fabrics can also be used as a print base, and create a print collection that is respectful with the environment.

From bottles to high quality fabrics

Since 2018, all of our fabric collections have been made from recycled sources like PET bottles, we use recycled polyester instead of virgin polyester.

By turning those bottles into yarn and later fabric, we can now optimize the lifespan of PET plastic, while also reducing pollution and textile waste. By choosing recycled polyester to create your own collections instead of regular PET, you can easily reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to decrease the pollution in our planet.

How do we turn PET bottles into recycled yarn and later textile?

  1. Clear plastic bottles are collected.
  2. The bottles are washed and cut into small pieces.
  3. The plastic is melted, spun into yarn, and woven into fabric.

Recycling process can be tedious and complex but, is vital to start being part of the solution for the big environmental problem that our planet face today.

The many benefits of Recycled Polyester

  • Plastic is the largest source of ocean litter. Recycling reduces the amount of new plastic in circulation—and therefore in our recycled collections.
  • Recycled polyester has a 79%-lower carbon footprint than virgin polyester, and its production uses up to 90% less water.
  • Fabrics created from recycled polyester can be recycled again and again with no degradation of quality, minimizing wastage.
  • Three billion recycled plastic bottles save over half a million barrels of oil and eliminates 400,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
