Recycled PET polyester
basq is the only brand that uses plastic bottle waste as a raw material to design all our garments, many of which are collected on our coasts, thus preventing them from ending up in incineration or in the oceans.
What is PET?
PET is polyethylene terephthalate, a type of petroleum-derived plastic used to make plastic bottles. At basq we use these recycled PET bottles to obtain recycled PET polyester that maintains the same quality as virgin polyester; very resistant, quick drying and easy to wash without deforming.
