Washable business suit made from recycled polyester

My fellow ICIS blogger Doris has a great posting on the new washable men’s business suit made from Teijin’s Eco-A-Wear fabric, on her Green Chemicals blog:

“The fabric is composed of 54% recycled polyester, 42% wool and 4% stretched spandex. Teijin’s recycled polyester by the way is made from used polyethylene terephtalate (PET) bottles. According to them it took 25 2-litre bottles to make one suit ….

And since it’s washable, Teijin emphasized that there is no need to dryclean them which is a big plus in saving money and reducing the use of perchloroethylene.”
