Regenerated Fibres - Polyamide Extrusion v2

Closing the loop on plastics

Between 4.8 and 12.7 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean every year. This doesn’t even account for the mountains of plastic that are incinerated or sent to landfill. Despite growing public awareness of the problem, the rate at which our societies produce plastic waste is not relenting, and there is so much already out there.

That’s why we believe we need to rethink how we view plastic waste; a material resource, not just pollution.

Plastic, polymer-based fabrics offer durability and high performance, extending the lifetime of a garment. However, they are extracted from petroleum, an unsustainable and finite resource. Producing fabrics made from recycled plastics reduces our reliance on fossil fuels, requires considerably less energy and water, and reduces air pollution.

Landmark reached

We’re proud to say that all our products containing polyester and polyamide (Nylon) are made using recycled materials; all the way through our range, from our waterproof and insulated jackets to our swimwear and accessories.

Our recycled polyester comes from both post-consumer and post-industrial waste, which is regenerated into new fibres, comparable in quality to virgin polyester. We also use recycled polyamide regenerated from post-industrial waste, collected during spinning and weaving at our fabric mills.

 

The best news of all?

These fabrics can be re-recycled forever, helping to close the loop on the plastic problem and create a circular manufacturing process. It seems fairly simple to us; the plastic is out there, isn’t going anywhere, we know it doesn’t degrade, but we can recycle it indefinitely.

So, why would we rely on making new plastic?
