A soft and lustrous organza fabric made using Global Recycle Standard-certified recycled polyester yarn that comes from post-consumer PET (plastic) bottles, and blended with Tencel™ fibres created from 100% recycled cotton.
This recycled textile has a really dreamy smooth hand feel. Up close it has a grainy appearance, caused from the blending with a man-made cellulose. There is a lustre to both sides, and is especially translucent when layered as well owing to the grainy look. The handle is incredibly light, so you probably would not feel you were wearing anything! Rather than slippy as some synthetic organzas can feel, the inclusion of Tencel gives this fabric a matte friction and yet is still silky. It is classed as an organza due to the crisp yarns and close weave. The textile springs back when crumpled, and so creasing is evident, though light steaming would help ease this out.
Suitable for bridalwear, partywear, fashion, millinery, crafts as well as linings. It could also be used in interiors as blinds or room separators, table runners and pelmets. As it is soft on the skin, it could also be used for certain lingerie like soft bras.
This fabric is made in China with Japanese Quality Control Inspection and traceability system.
Recycled materials ensure that post-consumer waste is utilised rather than virgin resources. As this is 100% polyester, it can be recycled again (in the right system).
GRS (Global Recycle Standard) is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions. The production facility is GRS-certified for all recycled fabrics in their range.
This recycled fibre comes from the RENU™ project. In comparison to virgin-derived polyster, RENU™ can reduce water, reduce CO2 emissions, and also take waste material from clothing (which they also use for some of their materials).
To care for your product:
Suitable for the washing machine and cool tumble drying, but we recommend cooler washing and air drying to protect the life of the synthetic fibre.
Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 a year. We recommend line drying as this reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer. Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or even just steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower. This particular fabric springs back nicely, but iron if necessary on a low heat temperature.
