At SA1NT, we’ve carved a reputation for tough, even UNBREAKABLE fabrics. So whilst our longer-lasting garments contribute to a reduction in fast fashion, lowering manufacturing and distribution footprints, we know there’s always more we can do to support planet Earth and its inhabitants.
We understand everyone can better mitigate their global impact and that supplier choices have consequences, so here’s a few conscious social and environmental choices we’ve made in the pursuit of more sustainable practices. 
Produce tougher and longer-lasting SA1NT garments that reduce the fast fashion cycle - meaning fewer resources wasted in materials and labour, helping to reduce the broad environmental impacts of the chain from crop to garment delivery.
Work with partners throughout the supply chain that value and utilise renewable energy and efficient use of resources. From bio-based feedstock to reduced water consumption and own treatment plants, renewable energy for production, active programs to reduce CO2 emissions and end-of-use recycling. We are constantly discovering new ways to reduce the carbon footprint and pursue a circular economy, choosing these like-minded and value-aligned suppliers. 
Choosing mills and factories that consider and manage their environmental impact, utilising organic and ethically sourced yarns, sustainable sulphur toxin-free dyes (such as Archroma), recycled and even biodegradable synthetic yarns wherever possible, and swapping from single-use to recyclable or biodegradable packaging. Partner memberships include certification to WRAP and Oeko-Tex standards.
Ensure that suppliers commit to ethical business practices. Meaning not only environmental considerations but labour forces within the supply chain are treated without duress or discrimination, with dignity and respect, exceeding all labour laws and working conditions standards. We actively search for BSCI certification from suppliers.
We don’t want to be a company with a veneer of sustainability marketing, we’d prefer to be measured by deeds rather than words. This is our ongoing pledge to pursue sustainable and ethical sourcing practices.

Repreve® Recycled Fibres

Repreve recycled fabric is a type of performance fabric made from recycled materials, primarily recycled plastic bottles. The process of creating Repreve fabric involves converting post-consumer plastic waste, such as plastic bottles, into polyester yarns that are then woven or knitted into textiles.

Why Does Sa1NT Layers Use Repreve?

1: Environmental Sustainability

Repreve fabric helps reduce the environmental impact of textile production by diverting plastic waste from landfills and oceans. By recycling plastic bottles into fabric, Repreve conserves natural resources, reduces energy consumption, and minimizes greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional textile manufacturing processes.

2: Resource Conservation

Producing Repreve recycled fabric consumes fewer natural resources than virgin polyester or other conventional fabrics. Recycling plastic bottles into fabric eliminates the need for extracting raw materials such as crude oil, which are used in the production of virgin polyester. This helps conserve natural resources and reduces reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels.

3: Waste Reduction

Repreve fabric contributes to waste reduction by repurposing post-consumer plastic waste that would otherwise end up in landfills or oceans. By transforming plastic bottles into durable and functional textiles, Repreve helps mitigate the environmental impact of plastic pollution and promotes a circular economy where materials are reused and recycled.

4: Energy Efficiency

The production of Repreve recycled fabric typically requires less energy compared to manufacturing virgin polyester or other synthetic textiles. Recycling plastic bottles into polyester yarns consumes less energy than extracting and processing raw materials from petroleum. This results in lower carbon emissions and reduced energy consumption throughout the manufacturing process.

5: Performance and Durability

Repreve recycled fabric offers performance characteristics similar to those of conventional polyester fabrics. It is lightweight, moisture-wicking, quick-drying, and breathable, making it suitable for various applications, including activewear, outdoor gear, and everyday apparel. Repreve fabrics are known for their durability and resilience, ensuring long-lasting performance even in demanding environments.

In Conclusion

Repreve recycled fabric offers a sustainable alternative to traditional textiles, providing environmental benefits, resource conservation, waste reduction, and performance attributes desired by both consumers and businesses. By supporting the adoption of recycled materials in textile production, Repreve contributes to a more sustainable and circular economy while addressing the challenges of plastic pollution and resource depletion.

Recycled Interlock

Recycled nylon interlock double-knit fabric is a sustainable textile that offers both aesthetic and functional benefits. The fabric is designed to sculpt and contour the body with graduated mild compression, creating a flattering and comfortable fit. The “buttery soft” finish adds to the luxurious feel of the fabric, making it a great option for activewear, athleisure, and other apparel items.

One of the key features of this fabric is that it is made using pre-consumer recycled nylon, which means that it is sourced from post-consumer waste such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff, and fabric scraps. This helps to divert waste from landfills and reduce the environmental impact of textile production. Interlock refers to the knit structure of the fabric, which consists of two layers of fabric knitted together.

Using recycled nylon in interlock fabric helps reduce the environmental impact of textile production. By repurposing nylon waste materials, such as discarded fishing nets and industrial plastics, recycled nylon interlock conserves natural resources, reduces energy consumption, and minimizes the need for virgin nylon production. This contributes to waste reduction and promotes a circular economy by diverting materials from landfills and oceans.

By supporting the adoption of recycled materials in textile production, recycled nylon interlock contributes to a more sustainable and circular economy while addressing the challenges of plastic pollution and resource depletion.

Bamboo Fibres

Using bamboo in clothing offers several environmental benefits compared to conventional materials like cotton or synthetic fibers. Here are a few of the reasons why SA1NT Layers choose to use bamboo in it's products

Low Environmental Impact

Bamboo cultivation typically requires fewer resources compared to other crops. It requires minimal water, pesticides, and fertilizers to thrive, reducing the environmental footprint associated with agricultural practices.

Carbon Sequestration

Bamboo plants are highly effective at sequestering carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. Bamboo forests absorb more CO2 and release more oxygen (O2) than equivalent stands of trees, making them valuable carbon sinks.

Water Efficiency

Bamboo requires significantly less water than cotton to grow. It has natural drought tolerance and can thrive in a variety of climates without the need for extensive irrigation. By reducing water consumption in agriculture, bamboo cultivation helps conserve freshwater resources and mitigates pressure on water-stressed regions.

Overall, using bamboo in clothing offers numerous environmental benefits, including sustainability, resource efficiency, carbon sequestration, soil health, and biodegradability. By incorporating bamboo fibers into textile production, manufacturers and consumers can contribute to a more environmentally friendly and socially responsible fashion industry.
