How it is made?

"The future is yours"

The process in which plastic bottles are processed into clothing has 5 steps:

Step 1:

Postconsumer bottles are collected from different places all around the world

Step 2:

The bottles are ground into small pieces or "flakes” these flakes are carefully cleaned. And get sorted by color.

Step 3:

The sorted flakes are melted and compressed into compact granules.

Step 4:

These granules are melted one more time and then spun into high quality yarns. Yarn made of plastic.

Step 5:

This Waste2Wear RPET yarn can be used on its own but can also be combined with other yarns to obtain a wide range of fabrics.
