The Material and the Process
ach sock is constructed of a unique fiber blend called Recover® Blue, which is constructed of upcycled cotton fibersand recycled polyester that is sourced from post-consumer rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) bottles. The rPET used in the new collection is obtained by melting down post-consumer plastic bottles and re-spinning it into new polyester fiber.
The Recover® Upcycled Cotton fibers in each sock use textile waste as a raw material resource, diverting it from landfill and incineration, and reincorporates the material back into the construction of each sock. The Recover® Blue fiber blend is third-party certified and measured by its environmental impact to determine the true quality of the product. In being less dependent on virgin materials, using Recover® in the new Everyday Upcycled collection offers low-impact manufacturing processes that reduce carbon emissions, save energy, reduce water and land use, and set a new industry standard.
