Recycled Nylon

1million tons of textiles are thrown away every year, with 50% ending up in landfill. With a large percentage of textiles being synthetic in today's industry, that means a lot of plastic is being wasted in the form of clothes every year. Therefore, we have decided to used a recycled nylon fabric created by Olmetex to stop so much going to waste.

What is Olmetex Recyled Nylon? 

It is 100% recycled PA (Nylon) made from Post-consumer/PET recycled. It’s PFC free and Water Repellent. 


How is it made? 

Post-consumer/PET is broken down into chips, which are then heated and passed through a spinner to form yarn. The yarn is then wound up in spools and passed through a crimping machine to create a fluffy woolly texture. This yarn is then knitted into Nylon fabric.
