Plastic-to-Apparel is the New Black

Think: Trash-Shred-Spin-Wear™

Kastlfel, a Colorado-native clothing line that turns plastic bottles into super-soft apparel, has announced their introduction of new colors in both their jersey-knit and fleece fabrics. A pioneer of responsible textiles and the sustainable apparel movement, Kastlfel has forced us to re-think how we make our products.

Launching back in 2015, Kastlfel had just three original bottle colors, where the colors are derived from the plastic bottles themselves, rather than the use of added dyes. For example, their brown t-shirt is made of recycled beer bottles. The company, which prides itself on crafting better products, has always believed that form, function and fashion are an integral part of sustainable apparel.

“We are very excited about our new colors”, says Jerry Wheeler, CEO of Kastlfel, “It gives people the opportunity to buy apparel focused on consciousness and transparency while looking and feeling great. It also allows our customers to bring in a well-rounded and diverse Kastlfel collection to their stores.”

In conjunction with the new color palette, Kastlfel’s R&D department is developing a new line of eco-friendly print techniques utilizing PVC and phthalate free water-based inks. “By combining our award-winning print quality with the latest inks, equipment, and focus on environmentally friendly production, we set ourselves apart from the competition.”

“People love our water-based inks”, says Wheeler, “they are super soft to the touch, provide better durability and gives you a product you can feel good about wearing.”
