Polyester is a synthetic petroleum-based fiber, and converts PET polymers into textile fibers through a chemical process. PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) is also used, for example, for the production of plastic bottles. The quality of polyester unjustly has a bad reputation.
Polyester is not biodegradable, but can easily be recycled because of its synthetic properties. We therefore use sustainable, recycled polyester often in our clothing.
Polyester is strong, colorfast, quick drying, light, wear-resistant, and as good as wrinkle-free.
• Dry polyester clothing in the air and not in the dryer. Polyester clothing dries very quickly because the fibers hardly absorb water.
• It’s not necessary to iron polyester clothing. If you do it anyway, make sure that the fabric does not melt.
• Use as few pegs as possible when hanging polyester. Pegs can leave prints in your garment.
