The textile industry is responsible for approximately 20% of the worlds water waste and 10% of all carbon emissions.
We can all play our part in reducing waste and helping to lower emissions. That is why we are introducing a selection of recycled fabrics using PET yarns to our current product ranges.
In doing this, we are helping to close the gap between raw materials and recycling.
We also have 5 new recycled Infusion FR asc eco plain fabrics. This product combines the recycled fabric with a Fire-Retardant coating for extra peace of mind and to make it suitable for a variety of applications.
What is PET?
PET is a plastic resin that is used in millions of consumer products, along with food and beverage packaging.
PET can be defined as a consumer polyester thread derived from post-consumer recycled PET bottles (drinks bottles). The bottles are processed through grinding, washing, melting, repolymerising, spinning and texturing into new yarns.
