Recycled PET, rPET or recycled polyester is a material obtained from the recycling of leftover materials. Most of it comes from the recycling of PET bottles and, to a lesser extent, from industrial polyester or clothing waste.
It certifies that the product does not contain animal ingredients and that it is verified through various conformity assessments and tests in its production that no animal is exposed to any exploitation.
It is used both for the manufacture of containers and for the creation of clothing. After a recycling process -which does not involve the extraction of oil- the threads with which the recycled polyester will be made are produced and with them the ecological garments will be woven.
Grown using sustainable methods with low impact on the environment. The non-use of insecticides, fertilizers or other chemical products in the spinning and production process results in a comfortable fabric, 100% derived from plants and hypoallergenic, with high sustainability in the supply chain, in a natural tone that claims agriculture traditional.
It is the standard by which fabrics and textiles are approved to be made from organic fibers. Only textiles made with at least 70% organic fibers can obtain this type of certification. The goal of GOTS is to define globally recognized requirements that ensure the organic status of textiles, from the collection of raw materials, including responsible manufacturing from an environmental and social point of view and even labeling to provide a credible guarantee to the final consumer; that is, their sights are set on generating trust and transparency throughout the supply chain. Textile processors and manufacturers are allowed to export their organic fabrics and garments with a certification accepted in all major markets.
OEKO-TEX Standard 100
The most widely used eco-label in the world to guarantee that products have been analyzed for more than 300 harmful substances. The certification is based on the scientifically based OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog and neutral laboratory tests, taking into account numerous substances, both regulated and unregulated, that could be harmful to health, as well as preventive parameters.
Enzyme washing is a final finishing textile procedure used to soften a fabric. By partially applying enzymes, a softer touch is achieved and/or the microfiber is reduced or eliminated. It is generally applied to cotton, denim, tencel or seaqual.
