Textile industry is one of the most polluting our planet. Cheap polyester is probably the biggest offender when it comes to the high environmental cost of fashion.
Synthetic fibers are the most popular fibers in the world – it’s estimated that synthetics account for about 65% of world production versus 35% for natural fibers. Most synthetic fibers (approximately 70%) are made from polyester, and the polyester most often used in textiles is polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The majority of the world’s PET production – about 60% – is used to make fibers for textiles; about 30% is used to make bottles. It’s estimated that it takes about 104 million barrels of oil for PET production each year – that’s 70 million barrels just to produce the virgin polyester used in fabrics..
We are aiming to develop a wide range of rpet fabrics, accessible for different businesses and projects. We feel responsible for what we produce and we would like to inspire by bringing a high quality, environmentally and socially responsible textiles.
Climat changement is not a myth, nowadays people all over the world are looking for sustainable solutions in all the industries to slow the degradation of our ecosystem. We think that decentralising productions, supporting growing local businesses, hand-made markets by ECOLOGICAL and RECYCLED POLYESTER fabrics to the local market, is a part of our responsibility.
Ethical and Ecological textiles are hard to buy for a small entrepreneurs or « hand made » sewing passionates, they are inexistent in fabric shops.
The producers of recycled polyester fabrics demand high MOQ, as they are usually weaved on demand, and we can’t find a local (european) suppliers that could provide them to local shops or growing businesses.
Offering our fabrics to the fabrics shops and growing fashion/home decor businesses will give solutions and unique products that not only are good for business but mostly for the environment. We want force the textile industries by creating a high demand for sustainable fabrics to change their aims from purely economical to ecological.
