Closing the Loop
What is REPREVE?
REPREVE is the leading, most trusted, branded performance fiber made from recycled materials, such as plastic bottles.
REPREVE is made by Unifi, a leading global textile solutions company - transforming recycled bottles into amazing fibers. Our process embeds properties like wicking, adaptive warming and cooling, water repellency, and more at the fiber level. For reliable, durable quality.
With one million plastic bottles per minute being sold around the globe and only 9% recycled, we share REPREVE's mission of capturing these valuable resources and giving them new life.
Through using REPREVE and partnering with Unifi, Loop has helped in recycling over 20 billion plastic bottles!
What makes Loop's fabric special?
Most swimwear is made from WARP knit fabric, but our performance fabric is a special circular WEFT knit, which has more 4-way elasticity.
From day one, Loop swim has partnered with REPREVE to transform post-consumer use plastic bottles into phenomenal UPF50+ sun protective swimwear for women, men and kids—and now we'll even be able to recycle your old Loop swimsuits. REPREVE is an essential part of our mission to deliver transparency to our customers and close the loop on waste throughout the life of your swimsuit.
