The manufacturing process for eco-fabrics starts with collecting used PET bottles, before taking them to a recycling facility where they are pre-washed and sorted into piles of green and clear plastic. They are given a soapy bath, just warm enough to remove any labels.
Once the bottle is cleared of non-PET materials, it is ground into flakes which are then melted to form small pellets.
The small pellets are heated to create fibres which are then spun into yarn. We use only the highest quality filament fibres, which are longer, finer, and more durable…perfect for Dharma Bums activewear.
The yarn is finally woven to create the high-quality eco-fabric we use in our recycled activewear
Each pair of leggings made using this process recycles 16-18 plastic bottles.
Together we’re making a difference.
