What is recycled polyester?
Recycled polyester (rPET for short) is a fabric that’s produced from synthetic fibres. Recycled polyester is produced by recycling existing materials (like plastic bottles and packaging) but still has all the characteristics and performance as a regular polyester, making it a more sustainable fabric alternative.
How’s recycled polyester made?
Recycled polyester is made by crushing plastic products into small pieces. These small pieces are then processed into yarn, transformed into a fibre, and in the end—made into a fabric.
What are the advantages of recycled polyester?
Producing rPet takes 33% to 53% less energy than creating polyester from scratch. Also, rPet produces approximately 54.6% fewer CO2 emissions to the air than virgin polyester.
The inspiration behind The Whale Shark Collection is the award-nominated image'Isolation'by conservation biologist and wildlife photographer Kaush Subramaniam.
Taken during his time researching whale sharks with The Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme, a portion of the profits from the sale of each item in this collection will be donated to the charity in order for them to continue their vital work.
