Unifi, Inc., the makers of REPREVE recycled fibers, is providing designers with an authentic 100% recycled textile solution for their sustainable designs. REPREVE is fiber made from 100% recycled materials, and is available as 100% post-consumer (plastic PET bottles) or 100% hybrid blend (pre-consumer and post-consumer waste). With REPREVE, designers can expect the same performance and quality as virgin polyester and nylon fibers.

Unifi's U Trust verification program ensures that REPREVE recycled fibers, and the fabrics and products made with REPREVE, are traceable, transparent and certifiably sustainable. Using Unifi's unique Fiberprint technology, from any point in the supply chain, fabrics and products can be tested and analyzed for the presence of REPREVE. Additionally, REPREVE fibers are certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) for recycled content claims and have received the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification, ensuring that REPREVE fiber is free of harmful levels of more than 100 restricted chemicals.

“Trust and transparency are important to Unifi and it's important that the design community have a level of confidence when specifying a recycled product,” said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi. “With REPREVE, designers can trust they are getting an authentic recycled solution that protects the environment and their environmental claims.”

In an effort to raise REPREVE awareness in the industry, REPREVE will be the official bag sponsor of the Hospitality Design show. The bag is made with REPREVE, so every time show attendees put something into the bag, they are reminded of what's being taken out of the landfill –used plastic bottles.
