REPREVE® started life 20 years ago as waste, spat out of a yarn machine.

Because we believe there’s a use for everything, a bright spark asked, ‘What if we could make fiber waste back into fiber?’. This started our journey of seeing waste as a resource, a resource in the wrong place but one with tons of possibility.

In addition to making use of manufacturing waste, we turned our attention to consumer waste – the plastic bottles that clog up landfills and bob in our oceans.

Two decades and over 34 billion recycled bottles later, we're still trying to be useful. Because by helping people take a step, we are building good habits. Yesterday’s recycled bottle, today’s sustainable tee, tomorrow’s bigger actions.
