At Silk World we are increasing our selection of natural, sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics. We are keen to source fabrics that are produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way and will be launching lots of exciting new ranges in the coming months.
Our recycled polyester (rPET) range has been developed by recycling clear plastic water bottles. By recycling plastic bottles in this way, we divert them from our landfills. The production of recycled polyester efficiently conserves natural resources and reduces the burden on the natural environment while maintaining the quality of a virgin polyester yarn. Our recycled fabrics are environmentally friendly, safe, sustainable and eco-friendly. This recycled range consists of polyester satin, stretch polyester crepe, heavy satin, double georgette and chiffon.Read More...
What are Silkworld's sustainable fabrics made from?
Our eco-friendly fabrics are made from recycled PET bottles. PET is a material called polyethylene terephthalate and is most commonly used to make bottles and other plastic products like food packaging etc. Once the plastic bottles are collected, they are processed into a yarn that is almost like the quality of a traditional virgin polyester fabric.
What are the benefits of using recycled & sustainable fabrics?
Adopting sustainable practices when it comes to making clothing is something that everyone should be doing. With our range of recycled fabrics, you can make the move to becoming more conscious of how your consumption impacts the planet. Silk World’s selection of sustainable fabrics will benefit you and the planet by reusing plastic bottles that would have otherwise been a pollutant in the environment. When a fabric is made from rPET, you are taking plastic items out of landfill and making use of them again with a new life cycle.
