You Recycle, We Produce

Ever wonder how your recycled plastic bottles are transformed into fabric? Then wonder no more. Polyester yarn is made from recycled plastic bottles that have been sliced, diced and melted before being formed into flakes. These flakes are used to produce recycled yarn, which is then used to make recycled fabrics

Abszeway is focused on using fabrics made form recycled plastic, ocean and landfill waste to create performance activewear. From using these fabrics, we believe our eco-friendly products have a low environmental impact.


All synthetic fabrics shed tiny pieces of plastic called microfibers in the wash. We recommend washing all of your synthetics in a washing bag to capture these fibers before they enter our water streams. Let us keep microfibers out of the oceans and away from the creatures that inhabit them and show some love to the planet.

Our Fabrics

Millions of marine animals are harmed every year by ocean plastic pollution. About 10% of the estimated 14 billion pounds of trash dumped in our ocean annually is made up of abandoned, lost or discarded fishing gear.  Landfill sites are also diminishing, the growing human population means that habitable land is becoming more and more valuable with each passing day. Proper waste management through reusing and recycling of plastics can save significant amount of landfill space.

At Abszeway we aim to create a variety of options for everyone, we use a number of different fabrics in our product.

ECONYL®, a fibre made from recycled fishing nets and other waste that would otherwise be discarded into oceans and landfills. By using this recycled material, we help clean our oceans, recycle that waste, and cut out the need for raw materials like crude oil, which are traditionally used in the production of nylon.

RPET, a recycled polyethene terephthalate (commonly known as polyester) or, essentially, recycled plastic, this can be in the form of bottles, straws etc. Choosing rPET helps create a circular economy by keeping materials already extracted from the earth in circulation. Nine post-consumer plastic per meter were diverted from the waste stream.
