What is it made of?
Shell: 85% Recycled polyester, 15% Elastane. Lining: 90% Recycled polyester, 10% Elastane.
All our recycled polyester meets the GRS (Global Recycle Standard) of minimum 20% recycled fibers. At Fsward we aim to reach at least 25%. Made from plastic production leftovers, PET plastic bottles, nylon fishing nets and other plastic waste, recycled polyester requires far fewer processing stages and energy usage. It's also making sure that less plastic ends up in landfills or in nature.
Elastane is a commonly used fiber that makes the fabric elastic. It is based on oil. At Fsward, our goal is to use more sustainable materials for 100% of our products by 2025. Using recycled or and other alternatives will be important in our journey. The fashion industry is also investigating a biobased elastane.
