PET fabric is made out of recycled plastic bottles blended with cotton. Thanks to technological innovation, the combination of these fibers enables the creation of a knitted fabric that has just the same resistance, durability and fast colors as products made with conventional polyester.

Pineapple fiber or Piņa is a strong white or creamy cobweb-like fiber drawn from tall leaves of an indigenous pineapple plant. The fiber is hand stripped from the leaves in lengths of about 18 inches to 3 feet, sun-bleached, hand knotted and spun. As piņa fiber recovery is only about 1%, it can take six months to gather enough fiber to produce two pounds of spun piņa. For more background info on fiber, read this blog.
