KAMPOS’ men swim shorts are produced from 100% recycled plastic bottles. KAMPOS uses Newlife™, which is a unique, complete and certified system of recycled polyester filament yarns coming 100% from postconsumer bottles sourced, processed into a polymer through a mechanical process (not chemical) and spun into yarn completely in Italy. The production process is divided in 4 simple steps.
Empty PET bottles are collected and taken to the recycling process, which is carried out completely in Italy, in the Piedmont region.
PET bottles are separated by type and color. After quality control they are compressed into bails and stock before processing.
Bottles are washed and mechanically ground, then converted into flakes to be transformed into the new polimer ready for the spinning stage. The polimer is extruted, span into Newlife™ yarn, which becomes the base for the unique textile we use.
Each product is then designed, produced and packed with obsessive attention to detail by our artisans in Northern Italy. There are no metal parts on our products, they have been replaced with wood and pearls.
