The process of creating denim from recycled ocean plastic includes 4 steps:

STEP 1: OUT OF THE OCEAN.
Plastic pollution is first retreived from the oceans.

STEP 2: PIECED IN PREPARATION.
The retrieved ocean plastic is broken down into chips and then shredded to fibres, ready to be spun into yarn.

STEP 3: SPINNING THE YARN.
Ocean plastic fibres are spun into strong core yarn and then helixed with cotton, making Bionic® yarn.

STEP 4: WEAVING AND KNITTING.
The innovation is complete with the weaving or knitting of Bionic® yarn into RAW for the Oceans fabrics.
