Klopman has developed a new range of products made with recycled polyester. Europe’s leading brand in work wear has been involved in the production and marketing of blended fabrics in 65 per cent polyester and 35 per cent cotton since 1968.
Today, the basic yarn utilized for the making up of work wear garments can be replaced by similar materials aimed at reducing the environmental footprint, conservation of resources and to support developing countries. Recycled polyester is made from PET plastic bottles, a resource that would otherwise end up in landfills. The challenge for the company was to develop a sustainable product capable of maintaining the features and fabric standards in terms of comfort and durability.
The company also constantly applies its commitment to innovation in accordance with ethical and environmental considerations. From the selection of raw materials through weaving, dyeing and finishing, the company is constantly working to minimise the use of toxic substances, reduce waste, reduce energy consumption and to sustain the development of renewable energies.
The company is also equipped with advanced air extraction systems, which are installed throughout the factory, filter and purify the air by minimising the impact of harmful substances into the outside environment.
