Think Globally, Source Ethically
A major source of global CO2 emissions is the transportation of finished consumer goods. The garment industry is no exception as most of its emissions are generated by bulk shipping finished garments from off-shore factories to their North American destinations. BISHOP helps to minimize CO2 emissions by manufacturing almost all (98%) of our orders in our factory in Vancouver, Canada, from fabrics stocked and available locally.
Bishop is pleased to announce the following additions to our polyester offerings:
- Repreve Micro Mesh
- Repreve Micro Pique
- Repreve Heavyweight Pique
- Repreve Micro Poly Fleece
These fabrics are produced from a unique mix of recycled post industrial fiber waste and post consumer plastics that is spun into a yarn that is combined with virgin polyester.
What is Repreve?
Repreve is comprised of post-industrial fiber waste and post-consumer plastics. This recycled mix is put through a unique conversion process in which it is chopped, ground, melted and reformulated into 100% recycled Repreve chips; these chips are then made into garment yarn using a proprietary process.
