Our Fabric

Keeping Waste Plastics out of our Oceans and Landfills

Our unique, ultra soft and highly absorbent fabric is made using single use waste plastics. The internal side of the fabric, is made of Terry Loop Cotton and is soft and incredibly absorbent, helping even thick and heavy hair to dry quickly and gently. While the larger outside of the fabric is made from recycled PET plastics collected from plastic bottles. This allows for the fabric to be printed on in such beautiful detail without loss of the distinct loop, texture or quality of the towelling inside.

From Landfill to Luxury

The use of this ingenious two sided fabric is beneficial for the environment in two ways. Firstly, we reduce the amount of cotton required to make a towel by over half. Reducing the water, carbon and human impact of cotton farming. Secondly, rPET, which makes up over 60% of our product is a recycled fabric made from single use plastics which could otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Reducing the carbon footprint of making our towelling and helping to support the movement towards a circular textile economy.
