The launch of Funky Sportswear by Scimitar has seen a number of changes introduced.
We’re delighted to reveal that all new technical sportswear (excluding the leggings & shorts for the time being) have been made with up to 100% recycled polyester.
As with our Elite range, Extensive testing and research over the past 18 months has led to this moment.
It has allowed us to create and launch a new range of apparel that is produced with recycled plastic bottles and organic/regenerated cotton.
The Eco:1 range of running vests, cycling jerseys and technical t-shirts are made from 100% recycled post-consumer polyester, with each of these products containing up to seven recycled plastic bottles.
But how does it work?
Well, it’s relatively simple to explain.
Pre-consumer fibre waste and post-consumer plastics are collected and gathered together.
The collected plastic is then converted with a unique process, reformulating the plastic as a recycled resin.
The recycled resin chips are then extruded and textured, and put on a roll as polyester yarn.
REPREVE, our brilliant supplier of recycled fabric, have put together the following video to show you how this process looks from collection to yarn production.
