Manufactured entirely from plastic bottles, the aim of recycled polyester is to reduce, reuse and recycle. Choosing sustainable fabrics from the PT Eco range contributes to a greener way of living and helps to care for our planet.

Starting their lives as plastic bottles, our PT Eco fabrics help reduce harmful waste. Just one pound of recycled polyester fibre saves 10 plastic bottles from landfill, which otherwise would take 450 years to decompose.


  • Recycling 1 ton of recyclable plastic containers saves 5.7 square metres of landfill space.
  • The process of making recycled polyester uses 90% less water than standard polyester.
  • Recycled Polyester requires 70% less energy than virgin fibre production.
  • 1kg of recycled plastic can keep 60 water bottles out of landfill.
  • 51 billion plastic bottles go into landfill anually worldwide.


  • Plastic bottles are shredded into flakes approximately 1cm wide, allowing for a quicker and more even melting process which reduces heat energy and improves the quality of the consistency.
  • These flakes are washed, dried and heated to liquid state.
  • The liquid plastic is extruded through a machine to form long strands which are then cooled and cut into small chips.
  • The chips are melted down for a second time and formed again into continuous, ultrafine strands called Filaments.
  • The Filaments are then spun into yarn, texturised and wound onto spools ready to the shipped to mills to be woven into a finished fabric.


Cotton is a renewable natural resource, but the future of cotton production is vulnerable to poor environmental management and working conditions. Choosing PT Eco offers the assurance that the Organic Cotton production is certified to meet organic agricultural standards.

Organic Cotton production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Importantly organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals. Instead, it combines tradition, innovation, and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.

No chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton to help reduce our environmental footprint.

80% of organic cotton is rain-fed, helping to reduce the pressure on local water sources.

Its production keeps farmers and their families safe as they are not exposed to toxic chemicals.

When choosing organic cotton, you are investing in water conservation, cleaner air better soil and farmer livelihoods.

The process uses 91% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton.
