How are Recycled Webbing & Sustainable Narrow Fabrics Made?

In 2007 our partner Unifi began making their Repreve® product from recycled plastic waste. Today, they’re one of the most-trusted sustainable global solutions providers in the textile industry.


  • Source Recycled Waste: Recycled plastic bottles and post-industrial waste (including our own) are collected worldwide.

  • Make the Chip: Waste material is chopped, ground, washed, melted, and reformulated into high-quality REPREVE® chips.

  • Form the Fiber: The chip product is melted into liquid polymer and extruded through tiny openings in spinnerets to create continuous filaments that form REPREVE® fiber.

  • Process the Yarn: Fiber becomes by spinning it and air-jet texturing.

  • Ship to ACW: Finished yarn goes into webbing and narrow fabrics that make our products sustainable.

The process of creating quality synthetic fibers is perfected with melt extrusion. As polymers heat up to the point of melting, continuous fiber strands are created, providing luxurious, natural-seeming synthetic solutions.
