Dutch Label design rain capes using certified 100% recycled polyester.
Normal polyester uses petrochemical products, loads of water and has toxic byproducts. Recycled polyester is made from PET - in other words, plastic bottles. Instead of these ending up in landfill or the ocean, they are flaked, heated, machine shrunk and wound onto spools for making into fabric. This process uses up to 40% less energy and no new petroleum is needed.
