Recycled polyester is made from post-consumer plastic bottles or other plastic waste, diverting them from landfills and reducing the demand for new petroleum-based polyester production.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, making it more environmentally friendly compared to conventional cotton.
Hemp is a versatile plant that requires minimal water and no pesticides to grow. Hemp fabrics are durable, breathable, and biodegradable.
Econyl is a regenerated nylon yarn made from discarded fishing nets, industrial plastic waste, and post-consumer nylon products. It helps reduce the environmental impact of nylon production and waste.
