A contemporary material, recycled polyester combines the urgent need for more sustainable fashion with the innovative injunctions of a ready-to-wear industry constantly looking for something new.
Recycled polyester, an eco-friendly aesthetic
It’s nothing new: as fashion is one of the most polluting industries on the planet, textile designers are enthusiastically embracing environmental topics. The aim? To create fabrics produced using water-efficient methods with low fossil fuel consumption and also, if possible, made from existing materials. Recycled polyester fits in with this trend.
As its name suggests, it is entirely produced from plastic waste and textile fibres that have already been used. A contemporary innovation that certain fabric manufacturers have inventively reappropriated, especially in the sportswear ready-to-wear sector. A first.
