Our beanies are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles (rPET).
They feel like normal fabric! We make sure our beanies are thick to fit over all types of hair - no swimming cap syndrome!
How are our beanies made from plastic bottles?
1 - Bottles are collected, cleaned and sorted.
2 - The plastic is shredded into small flakes.
3 - The flakes are melted then extruded (spun and pulled) into yarn.
4 - The yarn is then spun into thread which is then woven into fabric. This fabric is used to make clothing!
Much clothing is made from polyester (petroleum) fabric, so our fabric is simply sourced from recycled petroleum.
