Wool is a naturally durable fiber and garments can stay in circulation for a relatively long period of time, reducing their environmental footprint. Research has established that woolen products have the potential for several ‘lives’ over 20-30 years.
Wool is one of the world’s most suitable fibers for reuse, extending the lifetime of garments and helping the environment
Choosing long-lasting, readily recyclable woolen garments over other options can reduce the quantity of textiles that ends up in landfill.
Polyester is a synthetic fabric that’s usually derived from petroleum. This fabric is one of the world’s most popular textiles, and it is used in thousands of different consumer and industrial applications.
Polyester fiber is strong and durable and has excellent wear resistance.
Please note that, when there is no better eco option when picking fabrics, Rita Row prefers to choose a regular polyester that is made next to our garment manufacturer rather than a recycled one that has no guarantees and is made thousands of miles away from our suppliers.
We suggest to use it well, do not wash it too much and please when you don't want to use it anymore find another life for it. It can be used to recycle fibers!
