Sustainability - Our Fabrics

How do we make Rumies from plastic bottles?

Water bottles are collected and sent to a recycling facility where the conversion process of turning waste into wearable fabric begins.


Our signature fabric follows the RUMIES PROMISE, offering 4-way stretch, sweat-wicking, super soft hand feel and breathability while helping to make a positive impact on our planet.

How do we make Rumies from upcycled coffee grounds?

Coffee grounds are collected from coffee shops to a recycling facility where the magic happens and waste turns to re-usable goods.

RUMI X raglan gym tops, tops with built-in support and Wise tank tops are made using this cleverly crafted sustainable fabric. The upcycled coffee grounds material uses patented S. Café® technology offering functionality whilst meeting our RUMIES PROMISE. The combination of coffee grounds and yarn materials offers excellent odour control, UV protection and fast drying benefits.

  • Coffee grounds absorb odours your body produces throughout the day. The patented technology produces a material that has 3x more odour control than cotton or polyester.
  • S.Café® continually moves moisture away from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric for faster drying process, offering a 50% improvement in moisture-wicking compared to cotton.
  • S. Café® coffee grounds come with numerous microscopic pores, which create a long-lasting natural and chemical free shield for yarn or fiber, reflecting UV rays. The effect is 5x more UV protection than cotton.
