Our Materials repreve
Our swimwear is made of Repreve recycled polyester fabric which is a sustainable and eco-friendly choice for fashion.
Made from recycled plastic bottles, it helps to reduce plastic waste, conserve water, and reduce energy consumption. It is known for its softness, durability, and versatility, making it a preferred choice for fashion brands that prioritize sustainability.
What is Repreve fabric?
This fabric is made using a proprietary process that transforms post-consumer recycled plastic bottles into high-quality polyester fibers, which are then used to create a wide range of fabrics.
Environmental Benefits of Repreve fabric:
One of the significant environmental benefits of Repreve fabric is its ability to divert plastic waste from landfills and oceans. Plastic bottles, which are typically made from non-biodegradable materials like PET (polyethylene terephthalate), can take hundreds of years to decompose, posing a serious threat to the environment. By recycling these bottles into Repreve fabric, the need for new virgin polyester production is reduced, resulting in less demand for fossil fuels and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Another environmental benefit of Repreve fabric is its potential to conserve water. The production of virgin polyester requires significant amounts of water for the extraction of crude oil and the manufacturing process. In contrast, recycling plastic bottles into Repreve fabric requires significantly less water, conserving this precious natural resource.
Furthermore, Repreve fabric helps to reduce energy consumption. The production of virgin polyester requires the extraction and refinement of crude oil, which is an energy-intensive process. In contrast, the production of Repreve fabric requires less energy as it utilizes recycled materials. This helps to reduce the overall carbon footprint associated with the textile industry.
Our swim lining is also made of recycled nylon which is lightweight, soft, certified eco-friendly, certified recycled, UV protection and high chlorine resistant. The fabric also preserves color very well so our swim garments will keep its true color for years to come.
Our swim fabric is certified GRS, OEKO-TEX, and Higg Index, and Global Recycled Standard.
