Want to feel good about the environment, while you feel good in your me-made activewear? Try this recycled polyester blend, an athletic fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. Our oceans will thank you for keeping single-use plastics out of our waterways!
This warp knit Recycled Eco Polyester has been constructed with high performance end use in mind, including an additional moisture management finish. The combination of its tight knit structure along with high elastane content not only provides full coverage but also fantastic support, chlorine resistance, shape and retention.
Please note that as this is a recycled fabric, the wardrobe lifespan may not be as long as a garment made from 'new' fibres. However, with proper care, you should be able to enjoy your garment for many, many wears!
Recycled Eco Polyester has been developed using an eco-friendly GRS Certified green fiber to assist where we can in addressing the excess waste issues that we are facing in the world today. The polyester fibre is made from the recycling of discarded single use bottles that were destined for landfill.

Particular care should be taken with contrasting colours in the one garment.

Note: Sew Active Fabrics makes a big effort to take pictures that clearly and accurately show the colours of our fabrics and notions. However, computer monitors and browsers display colours differently, so there may be small variations from what you see and the actual colour of a fabric. If you need an exact shade in a fabric, please get in touch; we’re happy to send a small sample.
