production steps of recycled polyester threads

The post-consumer waste thread lifecycle

Polyneon Green is manufactured using recycled transparent bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The process of giving this post-consumer waste a second life as thread takes many steps:

  1. Recycling plastic bottles gives existing materials a chance at a new life.
  2. After the PET bottles are collected and prepared, they are shredded into flakes, …
  3. which are then formed into chips.
  4. Those are melted into a liquified form and extruded through microholes. 
  5. The recycled fibers are spun and turned into an amazing new thread which won't create new waste: Polyneon Green.
  6. Voila! Ready to shine and last in your sustainably produced premium embroideries.
