The launch of Funky Sportswear by Scimitar has seen a number of changes introduced.

We’re delighted to reveal that all new technical sportswear (excluding the leggings & shorts for the time being) have been made with up to 100% recycled polyester.

As with our Elite range, Extensive testing and research over the past 18 months has led to this moment.

It has allowed us to create and launch a new range of apparel that is produced with recycled plastic bottles and organic/regenerated cotton. 

The Eco:1 range of running vests, cycling jerseys and technical t-shirts are made from 100% recycled post-consumer polyester, with each of these products containing up to seven recycled plastic bottles.

But how does it work?

Well, it’s relatively simple to explain. 


Pre-consumer fibre waste and post-consumer plastics are collected and gathered together.


The collected plastic is then converted with a unique process, reformulating the plastic as a recycled resin.


The recycled resin chips are then extruded and textured, and put on a roll as polyester yarn. 

REPREVE, our brilliant supplier of recycled fabric, have put together the following video to show you how this process looks from collection to yarn production. 


If you’re looking for run vests, t-shirts or cycle jerseys for your company, club or charity, we can help.
