Footwear News : Rothy’s Releases 10 New Colorways For Shoes Made From Recycled Plastic Bottles
Rothy’s has taken a colorful approach to going green.
The label recently released 10 new colorways for its line of shoes made from recycled plastic bottles.
The range of hues includes pink, green, navy blue, came and red.
The manufacturing process used to create a pair of the flats sources recycled fiber from approximately three discarded plastic bottles, which are stripped of caps and labels, and then hot-washed and chipped into flakes.
The material is fused into filament fiber to make the environmentally friendly yarn, and a special 3-D knitting process reduces waste by crafting the footwear without seams.
