RUMI X //

If you’re all about cute and colorful activewear, look no further than Rumi X. With playful designs in vibrant hues, who wouldn’t be excited to work out in these digs? Made from plastic water bottles and coffee grounds (you heard that right), Rumi X’s materials are creative to say the least.

Recycling to the ultimate degree, their process begins with shredding, drying, and processing the plastic bottles into flakes which are then washed and melted. Then, yarns are pulled from the melted polyester. The raw thread is spun into a yarn and woven into their signature fabric. The used coffee grounds are washed, dried, and shaped into small pellets that are made into recycled raw thread and then spun into yarn to be woven into the Rumi fabric. Talk about resourceful!
