Scarab Sweatshirt, Grey Melange


Unisex product

Product description

Our symbol is the scarab beetle, the dung roller, representing renewal and rebirth in ancient Egypt. The dung roller is nature’s recycler, rolling cow dung into balls to lay its eggs in. In time, a new generation of dung rollers hatches out of those eggs. Like the dung rollers, we at Pure Waste gather others’ textile waste and give them another life as new products.

This classic Pure Waste sweatshirt is a mix of recycled cotton and recycled plastic bottles, a soft knitted fabric brushed from the inside. The shirt has raglan sleeves, a straight cut, a low hem with a ribbed neck opening, sleeves and a hem. The unisex model is sold using men’s measurements; therefore, women should choose one size smaller than usual.

This sweatshirt is responsibly manufactured at our factory in India. The logo is printed in Finland.

Additional information

Made of recycled raw materials.

• 60 % recycled cotton
• 40 % recycled polyester

Please note that our recycling process is not entirely clinical and our products may contain small amounts of different coloured fibers. In dark colours, fibers of different colours do not stand out, but in light colours they are more easily visible. For us, these little coloured fibers in our fabric are a feature that reminds us of the uniqueness and origin of our products.

Because of our production process, slight differences of shade may occur in fabrics of the same colour. We do not dye our products; the colour of the fabric originates in the colour of the waste fabric used to make it.
The sizes of products are sold at varying rates, which is why different sizes of the same product may come from different manufacturing batches. That means that they may also show slight shade differences.
We have updated the collar prints and labels on products, and for this reason they can also contain differences across different sizes or products.
