Mona Seatex™ Fabric is a high-performance recycled fabric. While it’s extremely strong and chlorine resistant, it’s also lightweight, soft and breathable. This combination provides a perfect balance between comfort and durability.
Where does it come from?
The nylon used in Mona Seatex™ Fabric is 100% regenerated, and is derived from post consumer waste reclaimed from the ocean and other environmental sources. This includes abandoned fishing nets and discarded plastics. Additionally, Mona Seatex™ Fabric is highly resistant to oil and sunscreen absorption. This helps keep harmful pollutants out of our delicate ocean ecosystems.
The ECONYL® regenerative process is used to create fresh yarns for Mona Seatex Fabric. Through a state of the art system, the recovered materials are cleaned, broken down and restored to their original purity. That means you can buy new products without using new resources. Best of all, once they are no longer needed they are 100% recyclable again.
Why is ECONYL® essential to MONA?
Our new Stay Wild 2018 Eco-Collection has repurposed thousands of pounds of fishing nets, saved thousands of barrels of crude oil and prevented many tons of CO2 emissions. This approach to reducing waste, water usage, and pollution is a vital first step in driving the apparel industry towards a more sustainable future.
Mona Evolve™ Fabric is made out 100% PET bottle recycled polyester filament using a process that prevents that more plastic reach the landfills and the oceans. The PET plastic bottles are collected, separated and processed in a recycling facility that transforms them into clean flakes, to create durable fibers without needing to use additional petroleum.
Benefits of using fiber made with recycled PET plastic bottles:
• Reduce the use of fossil fuel
• Save energy consumption
• Conserves water
• Decreases CO2 emissions
