Harken Derm Bandana
Harken Derm Bandanas are made with 100% verified recycled polyester. Up to two recycled plastic bottles diverted from landfills or the ocean and used in this headband. Moisture-wicking, quick drying and breathable. Multifunctional – 12 ways to wear.
Plastic bottles are collected and instead of ending in landfills, they are processed by Unifi® and made into Repreve® Recycled Fibre.
Yarn is milled and knitted into the fabric needed to make these bandanas.
Step 1: Begin with Bottles
Plastic bottles are collected domestically to minimize the transit carbon footprint and delivered to Reprive where they are cleaned and prepared.
Step 2: Chopped and Melted
The plastic bottles are then chopped into little pieces called Flake. The Flack is then melted and turned into small pellets called Chip, in preparation for the extrusion process.
Step 3: Yarn is created.
Long piece of yarn is created from Chip that has been melted and extruded. Yarn is then wound onto bobbins, in preparation to be made into fabric.
Step 4: The Yarn Is Knitted into Fabric
Spools of yarn are threaded into the knitting machine, creating the fabric used to make these Multifunctional Headbands.
