Workwear

NOVEL PRODUCTION, RESOURCE GENTLE

Aprons from recycled PET

Color

Upcycling PET bottles to aesthetic and functional workwear is the ultimate proof of how things can be done well. Since PET can only be recycled into new bottles to a limited extent, turning them into long-lasting workwear is a great way to give new life to plastic waste. The creation of KAYA & KATO aprons extends the lifecycle of the PET considerably. The fiber is well-suited for workwear application in bars, cafes, restaurants. They are easy to clean and by default water- and dirt-repellent. On top of it all, good design is self-evident at KAYA & KATO.

This is why
  • Resource gentle: blended fabric with recycled polyester  
  • Transparent Supply Chain: recycling of plastic into granulate and process into polyester yarn in Spain, processed in weaving mills  in Czech Republic and Macedonia, sewn in medium-sized companies in Germany, Portugal and the Czech Republic, refinement  in Germany
  • 1 meter fabric = 12,5 PET bottles 
  • CO2 reduction: the CO2 savings at 1000 meters of fabric correspond to the emissions of a car journey of about 11,000 km

On an important site note: KAYA & KATO was nominated for the German Federal Award ecodesign 2018 and received in the same year the Rolling Pin Newcomer & Innovation Award.
