Previously considered unsuitable for recycling, we are now able to incorporate the world's only spandex certified under the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) into our fabrics. This innovative solution is created by recycling waste fiber generated in the manufacturing process. This fiber also features a low oil content compared to conventional spandex. this reduces the environmental burden of the manufacturing process by reducing the amount of water, scouring agent and electricity used. We currently utilize recycled spandex in our stretch ski pants.
