Why it's a sustainable product

Dope Dyeing

Dope Dyeing consists in adding the colored pigment directly to the molten plastic solution before the fiber is made. Unlike traditional processes in which yarns are produced and then dyed with dope dyeing, the pigments are trapped inside the plastic during the transformation process into a solid shape, becoming part of the new yarn. This approach allows for dyeing by heat transfer without immersion in water.

 

Recycled Polyester

Recycled polyester (rPET) is a material obtained from recycling used plastic bottles. From this process, new polymers are obtained, which are transformed into textile fiber, which, in turn, it can be recycled again to give life to other plastic objects. Recycled polyester is a great example of a circular economy.
