Recycled PET plastic bottles are ground, melted and reformatted into chips. Chips are then sent to yarn spinning mills where they are melted and extruded into recycled polyester fiber.

Premium Italian recycled fabric offers high breathability, second-skin lightness, a perfect fit and UV protection.

“It takes 9 x 500ml plastic bottles to create an Alate Jersey, using a certified and traceable recycling process.”

By creating products from recycled polyester, plastic pollution is put to good use and compared to production with regular polyester, CO2 emissions are reduced, less energy is used and non renewable energy sources are saved.
