Motorcycle Sweatshirts

All of our motorbike sweatshirts are made exclusively of 85% ring spun combed organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester.

What is ring spun combed cotton?

After selecting the highest quality fibers, they go through a spinning process, which makes them softer, finer, stronger and more durable. Another step up in the process is combing, which removes any impurities and imperfect strands. This all makes the cotton superior and less prone to shrinkage than uncombed and open end cotton, which make up for most of the cotton garment production worldwide.

What is recycled polyester?

Our recycled polyester is made from post-consumer PET bottles.  
It’s clear that tackling plastic waste has become one of the major environmental challenges of our time – globally, about 9.5 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean annually, most of it single-use. 
Recycling polyester allows for considerable energy savings in the manufacturing process compared to non-recycled polyester. The recycled polyester is fully traceable, including the origin of the PET bottles. Depending on the style,  it takes between 38 to 80 plastic bottles of 550ml to produce a sweatshirt. Mainly sourced from China, these bottles might otherwise go to landfill or end up in our oceans.
