Polyester & Other Synthetics

1 Mar 2023

Author: SportscraftMarketing

Polyester and other manufactured synthetic fibres such as nylon and elastane are derived from petroleum. As the burning of fossil fuels such as petroleum is a major contributor to climate change, we are working towards phasing synthetic materials out of our collections.

So, what’s the alternative? Synthetics account for around 20% of our fabrics, included to provide ease-of-wear, stretch and durability. We are currently transitioning from virgin polyester to recycled polyester and replacing a percentage of our synthetic fabrics with man-made cellulosics. In the future, we hope to investigate the use of bio-synthetics as another alternative.
