WHAT IS RECYCLED POLYESTER?
7 reused plastic bottles are taken from our oceans and landfills to create Marda Men’s swim trunks. Everything starts with ocean waste plastic. We collab recycled plastic bottles and post-industrial waste (including our own) to initiate the ethical manufacturing process. The waste material is chopped, ground, washed, melted and reformulated into a high-quality chip that is used to form the fibre. Then, through spinning and air-jet texturing the fibre is formed into yarn. Next, the yarn is taken and after a rigorous quality check, custom made into highly technical Japanese fabric. The end result? Fabric that is, crispy, light, soft, water-resistant and able to dry in few minutes.
Not only is our very identity based on environmentally friendly manufacturing, we also care about the people behind the manufactory. That is why we have teamed up with manufacturers who are, ethically certified through rigorous checks fulfilling extremely strict requirements. We are proud to say that in conjunction with this, they remain at the very forefront of fabric technology. The result? A socially responsible premium quality product.
