Recycled Fabrics - Plastic
More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year. Millions of whales, turtles, fish and other species are affected by plastic marine debris. Recent studies indicate that at least 19 million kilos of plastic has accumulated and is floating in our oceans.* Ocean currents have formed five gigantic, slow moving whirlpools where the plastic collects.
Polyester Yarn is made with used plastic bottles which are ready to be recycled, they are cut, chopped, and melted, then formed into flakes. 100% Recycled Yarn is obtained from these flakes to make recycled fabrics. JF Recycled Fabricis made from recycled polyester yarns and recycled cotton yarns.
Recycled Fabrics - Cotton
Recycled Cotton is an alternative to conventional cotton. Cotton yarn is made with recycled cotton fabrics, they are cut into pieces, cotton fibre is obtained and becomes recycled cotton yarn. Eco Fabric is made with recycled cotton.
Recycled Fabrics - Polyester
Eco fabrics do not always have to be neutral. We have a range of fabrics from a number of European mills that use recycled polyester, cotton and polycotton yarns in the manufacturing of their fabrics. These are bold, colourful and have exotic woven designs such as the Laurisilva fabric and Amazonia fabric.
The recycled Polyester yarns are made from the recycling of PET plastic bottles and bottles from supermarkets and other similar outlets. This is helping to stop the flooding of plastic in the seas and oceans and thus helps to protect the environment.
Each fabric is made with these recycled fibers and carries the Ecolife label, and are certified "Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 4.0" by the quality control company "Control Union Certifications B.V." from the Netherlands.
Sustainable Fabrics - Organic Cottons
Sustainable fabrics such as recycled fabric or fabric made with recycled plastic are one way to help reduce our environmental impact. Organic cotton is a more sustainable way of producing cotton.
