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.
Look out for our eco logo which shows which fabrics have been
developed from recycled drinking bottles. They’re called – Argan,
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 yearns.
