MATERIALS
WHAT IS RECYCLED POLYESTER?

Polyester is a manmade fibre, synthesised from petrochemical products by a process called polymerization.  Recycled polyester is produced using pre or post-consumer waste that can no longer be used for its intended purpose.  Using recycled polyester reduces our dependence on non-renewable fossil fuels (petroleum), reduces landfill and associated soil, air and water contamination; whilst requiring significantly less energy during the manufacturing process compared to virgin polyester.

WHAT ARE UPCYCLED SEQUINS? 

Sequins are most commonly made from plastic.  In order to reduce our reliance on virgin plastics we are working with a supplier who can make our sequins out of self-generated plastic waste in a closed loop process. Iridescent sequins also require a lamination layer which cannot yet be produced using the self-generated waste plastic, and so this is being created using a different kind of waste plastic diverted from landfill.
