Repreve fibres & fabric
- story by MaterialDistrict
Repreve is a brand of recycled fibres made from recycled PET bottles. Billions of plastic bottles go into landfills every year. Repreve transforms recycled bottles into a fibre, used to make fabrics for athletic and fashion apparel and more. Their process embeds properties like wicking, adaptive warming and cooling, water repellency, and more at the fibre level.
Compared to virgin fibres, recycled fibres emit fewer greenhouse gases and conserves water and energy in the process.
