Seaqual is a different kind of filament which is made by recycling the plastic collected at the bottom of the sea. After many months of investment in R&D it has been possible to develop a 100% recycled polyester filament from which to obtain sustainable fabrics of the highest quality.
More than 400 boats and 1500 Fishermen from the Spanish Mediterranean coast are involved in the project.
Garbage caught in the fishermen’s nets is collected every day and taken to different ports.
The waste is collected weekly, they are classified and categorized so that each material (aluminium, glass, pet plastic, ...) goes to its unique recycling chain.
The PET Plastic is accumulated for conversion into flakes and later into polymer.
100% recycled polyester thread.
The filaments are used to create fabrics and later into garments.
Every year, 8 million tons of garbage end up in the oceans. It is estimated that 75% of the waste is in the depths of the sea and only 25% in on the surface.
