Recycled water bottle lining (PET)
Staheekum is proud to partner with Repreve - which transforms recycled bottles into polyester, the fiber is then created into soft lining (trust us it's super soft). They use processes like wicking, adaptive warming and cooling, water repellency, and more for reliable, durable quality.
Compared to making new fiber, Repreve offsets using new petroleum, which emits fewer greenhouse gases, and conserving water and energy in the process.
