We use recycled plastic and nylon mixed with spandex to make ultra-soft, stretchy, naturally breathable, and smooth hand-feel. All of our products contain more the 70 percent of recycled materials and 17 to 25 percent spandex mix.
Why do you make recycled nylon& polyester fabric?
You may not know how harmful plastic is for our environment; every piece of plastic ever made still exists in the world, which is not just harming our surroundings but becoming poison for aquatic life. It is estimated that if we did not control the plastic wastes from mixing in the oceans, there would be more plastic pieces than the fish.
The reason for recycled nylon fabrics is straightforward; just think about what will happen to the old fishing nets and other nylon waste if not recycled? So, our purposes of using recycled nylon fabrics are:
• It is reducing ocean pollution by using waste items for valuable products that are high-quality and save your aquatic environment.
•We help the marine life and protect it from pollution
•We give a second life to every waste that not just protect our environment but also save our sources.
•We not just believe but also practically ensure recycle-reuse-reduce.
How do you make your recycled fabric?
It is hard to believe turning a plastic bottle into a versatile and beautiful fabric, but it is possible. We are doing that to provide you eco-friendly according to global recycle standard citification standard clothes. Our recycled products are soft, long-lasting, durable, lightweight, and breathable that are fine and fit for you.
The process of recycled fabric is dealt with care, and we ensure high quality according to global recycle standard citification to produce the recycled fabrics. Our step-by-step recycled fabric-making process is as below.
•Step 1. Collection of waste plastic items
As we have mentioned, we make recycled fabrics from post-consumer plastic bottles, fishing nets, and other wastes. So, first, we collect such waste materials in Taiwan. The one reason for collecting such materials from Taiwan is that many certified and experienced fabric–manufacturing factories know very well about recycled fabrics.
•Step 2. Cleaning and washing
You know well the purity of any material is the essence of quality, so we only use plastic waste materials for quality assurance. After collection, our next process is to wash and clean the plastic nets, bottles, and other products. During that process, all the labels, lids, and other materials except plastic are removed from waste items, then wash them and cleaned with care.
•Step 3. Shredding and melting process
The Next process after washing and cleaning is the shredding and melting of plastic waste pieces. All plastic fishing nets, waste products, and bottles are shredded into flakes then melted in the recycled chips to prepare for the next process.
•Step 4. Yarn spinning
Once the plastic materials have melted in the recycled chips, they are reformed, and then the spinning process starts. Reformed materials are spun into yarn to ready them for the next process.
•Step 5. Recycled Fabrics
It may not be confusing now for you to understand because yarn could easily turn into fabrics. Like other fabrics process, the recycled materials made yarn then turn into fabrics that are durable and fit and sustainable.
Are recycled fabrics being BPA free?
Yes, our recycled fabrics are BPA (bisphenol A, an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins) free; we know why you are confused because some plastic types such as polycarbonates contain BPA, some other types of plastic also contain BPA. But we use PET polyethylene terephthalate that has been tested for over many years and proves safe for use.
Do excessive fabrics are of inferior quality?
It may happen sometime, but every time it is not. It is not necessary only inferior quality fabrics collected back; sometimes high-quality fabrics also return for many reasons, like over-produced than demand. No worry about the quality of the excessive fabric because we ensure the selection of premium performance fabric. Our fabrics are passed through a test before using them for products.
How do you restock the items that are made of excessive fabric?
We do not overproduce most of the time; we do not overproduce; if the stock sells out, we will custom make the fabric in limited quantities. So you do not need to be worry about the restock items.
How can I know you are really using recycled fabric?
Yes actually you can hardly distinguish recycled fabrics from normal fabrics with naked eye. That is why we need GRS certification to prove that the fabric we are using is strictly up to the eco standard. We want to be as transparent as possible to you, so we are happy to show you our GRS certification, just click here.
Where are the products made?
Our products are manufactured in China. China is one of the biggest markets where many big factories work in the fabric industry market. It is easy to find the best and most trained workers who know very well about product quality improvement.
We do our best to provide high-quality products to our customers at very reasonable rates. Since China has become the hub for fashion products, it is a significant opportunity to manufacture products there.
