ashmei's next step towards sustainability
Our 100% recycled fabric is produced from post-consumer PET bottles, reclaimed in a non-chemical process. The material is class-leading in breathability and protection with its microfibre structure. So not only does it actively utilise waste, it makes high quality, performance apparel. For every jersey made, we save 12 bottles from landfill.
Once the bottles are collected, they are sorted, cleaned and crushed. The polymers are then broken down before being reformed. The renewed polymers are then melted and spun into the recycled fibres before being given a hydrophilic treatment for the best breathability and fast moisture management.
ashmei is also dedicated to reducing waste in our factory to minimise our environmental impact. Our limited edition collections use leftover material and accessories to produce small runs of apparel manufactured to our usual high standards while ensuring we throw away as little as possible.
