Repreve denim…what is it and why is it important?
Repreve denim is made from recycled plastic bottles. In other words, the plastic bottles go through a conversion process where it’s melted down to round pellets and then extracted through a machine to create thin fiber yarns that is then used in the weave/make of the fabric. It is sustainable and re-purposing plastic bottles to give them another life.
We even have have green plastic bottle hang-tags that are attached to the jeans so you know your product is a part of Repreve! Not only does our denim look and feel good, but it also does good for the environment.
Do you have old denim, but you’re unsure what to do with it? Here are some ideas to give your denim another life:
- Patch/embroider it yourself
- Make shorts
