Composition and Details

Composition: 100% RPET Crepe

Our RPET polyester is from postconsumer plastic bottles, processed through a mechanical, not chemical, process and spun into yarn in Italy - all traceable. The material is super soft, 100% recycled, anti-UV, fast drying, antibacterial and hypoallergenic, certified by GRS (Global Recycle Standards by Textile Exchange) and Oeko Tex. RPET requires significantly less energy, releases 65% less carbon dioxide and requires 90% less water than normal polyester. All PET used is rescued from the waters of the world and are Global Recycle Standard Certified. Read more about our RPET here.
