Commitment to Sustainability in Performance-Fabric Form

NEW ORLEANSVapor Apparel receives The DPI Product of the Year Award in the Digital Media Category, honored for its recycled polyester performance fabrics engineered for sublimation printing. “Sustainability is a big part of our business plan and it is nice when the market recognizes innovation,” remarks Christopher Bernat, co-founder and chief revenue officer at Vapor Apparel.

The awarded Vapor product is made from old plastic bottles and is being produced in a country where almost 70 percent of the entire power grid is carbon-free, according to Jackson Burnett, co-founder and president of Vapor Apparel.

The company reports that recycled performance fabrics are a leading area of innovation in the apparel market. Sublimation is said to continually make major strides with national retailers, and as a result, vertical segments are developing. The apparel and performance markets are reportedly among the most aggressive adopters of recycled fabrics.
