Composition:  80% RPET Polyester, 20% Viscose

Our viscose (rayon) is a cellulosic fiber made from wood pulp sourced from sustainably managed forests. Our RPET is from postconsumer plastic bottles, processed through a mechanical, not chemical, process and spun into yarn in Italy - all traceable. With our unique fabrication, 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 is Global Recycle Standard Certified. Read more about our RPET here.

Care guide: Wash at 30°, iron on low, do not bleach.
