A new and exciting material we use in our SS23 Collection is REPREVE® Our Ocean™.
“To produce these fibres, plastics at high risk of entering the ocean are collected in coastal areas in developing countries or areas that lack formal waste or recycling systems. The waste is cleaned, broken down, certified by a third-party organisation, and transformed into premium fibres.”
