Our Perlon straps are made of 100 per cent #tide Ocean Material. #tide is a Swiss company that collects ocean-bound plastic and upcycles it into a new raw material. No additives or virgin materials are used in this process. The raw material is collected in South East Asia by local people who are fairly paid by local NGOs. The colours are standard pigment used in the textile industry. The pigment and all materials used are tested by REACH for conformity and are compliant with European law quality standards.
