D*Face x Rebels Alliance Tees

D*Face has just drops some two new Tees for the summer season. The tees pictured are made from 100% certified recycled plastic ‘PET’ bottles, the very same drinks bottles that we trash daily and swamp landfill sites.

The bottles are stripped of their labels and caps, washed, and crushed, then chopped into flake. These tiny pieces are melted and extruded to create fibre. The fibre produced is crimped, cut, drawn and stretched into the desired length for strength, then baled. The baled fibre can be processed into fabric for a variety of textile product uses including t-shirts.

The new tees are available exclusively online at D*Faces website and physically at StolenSpace Gallery in London.
