Recpoly

At Modrobes we use only sustainable and recycled materials to build our garments. These fabrics have superior performance features and reduce the amount of toxic chemicals that go into our environment by utilizing an audited fabric-making process.

This fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles (PET) taken from landfills. Once recycled the fabric produced is a premium performance fabric blended with 9% spandex for 4-way stretch capability. The fabric is then treated with a Teflon-free water repellant and moisture wicking coating.
