It should come as no surprise to find that these days plastic drink bottles can be recycled into a fabric that is, in turn, made into clothing. Normally we would associate this material with fleeces, but the US division of Teijin Fibers Ltd of China are producing a line of men’s fashion suits.
The company has currently secured a working partnership with the retail group Sears to produce a range of private label suits using a material that is a blend of the recycled plastic bottle material and wool.
This range of suits will have a price range of $175 for the jacket and $75 for a pair of trousers. These suits are fully machine washable which is a huge saving in both time and money.
