We have all heard of garments and bags made from upcycled materials, but
what about the threads that are used to assemble them? SERACYCLE® is a
new universal sewing thread, made from 100% post-consumer PET bottles.
Even its plastic spool is made from recycled polystyrene, and its packaging is kept to the minimum, without the usual plastic film.
How is it made?
PET bottles are shredded and washed thoroughly before being processed into fine filament, and spun into strong sewing threads.
