Durable Twill Made from Plastic Bottles

Oceanic, from Camira, is a fabric born of the SEAQUAL Initiative designed to combat marine plastic pollution and achieve a from which it was originally created, waste free environment. Post-consumer recycled plastic, including floating, discarded debris found in our oceans, along with bottled destined for landfills, is used to make SEAQUAL yarn to make a contemporary recycled polyester fabric, with a purpose.

A tidal wave of pollution
Each year, 12 million tons of plastic enters our oceans; equating to a truckload every single minute. The problem is growing at a rate faster than is almost impossible to conceive. Experts predict that by 2048 the amount of plastic in the seas will weigh more than the number of fish. This manmade disaster threatens one of our most crucial life sources with every passing day.

Expertly crafted
Each meter of Oceanic is woven from yarn made from 26 plastic bottles. Delicately dyed using cationic yarn, this multi-tonal textile combines and contrasts a light warp with a deeply saturated weft. With an intricate twill weave, this visual detail creates a subtle pattern.

Carefully curated colors
With a refined color selection of 16 shades, Oceanic combines muted, neutral hues with soft pastels and deep bolds to provide a versatile palette that echoes the shades visible on nature’s shoreline, as well as introducing a number of vibrant, trend-led tones.

This heavy-duty fabric comes with a 10-year guarantee and has been independently certified to >100,000 Martindale cycles. The fabric stands up to today’s requirement for fabrics that can be cleaned using with bleach, or alcohol solutions.
