Flotte is a French brand committed to more responsible and sustainable fashion. The latest addition to their collection is this 'Cape' which is fantastic for dog walking, bike riding. It has a much looser fit then the Amelot and would be amazing over the Belleville Sweatshirt, or any warm cosy jumper.
Like their other items, it is made from rPET (recycled polyester)
What is Recycled polyester ?
Mainly derived from the recycling of used bottles, food packaging and Used clothing the rPET (or recycled polyester) is brought back to the fiber state to be reused. This material ages slowly and is resistant to UV rays or weathering. The advantage is it can be recycled several times. PET can be recycled from post-industrial and post-consumer raw materials: it can be it takes the equivalent of 16 bottles of water to create one piece of their pieces.
An eco-friendly material
The higher the share of recycled polyester in the industry, the greater the virtuous effect on protection and respect for the environment. Indeed, the increase in the use of rPET results in mechanically a decrease in the consumption of new PET. This solution requires optimisations throughout the entire chain, starting with waste sorting. The objective: to transform our household waste into a source of high-value raw materials.
