RPET Clothing is an environmentally friendly fabric blend. RPET stands for Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, or recycled PET. RPET clothing is made from recycled polyesters, recycled plastics and pure, 100% organic cotton. RPET fabric blends are usually in a 50/50 ratio; we sell organic cotton clothing and stock tri-blend clothing as well. Furthermore, 90% less water is used in the manufacturing of RPET clothing, dramatically reducing Royal Apparel’s negative environmental impact. Our products that contain RPET yarn are made using recycled bottles. The amount of bottles per style may vary.
Random Facts about RPET Clothing:

When buying RPET clothing, you can be rest assured that it is a recycled material. Plastics bottles that are recycled would have ended up sitting in a landfill somewhere if it weren’t for this process or turning it into a fabric. The ease of mind of providing clothing to customers that is recycled is something we take great pride in and you will too!
