Oceanic

Nominee
2020-21
Oceanic is a fabric born of the SEAQUAL Initiative designed to combat marine plastic pollution and achieve a waste free environment. It is created entirely from post-consumer recycled plastic— from discarded debris floating in our seas, used to make SEAQUAL yarn, to thrown away bottles destined for landfills. One small drop in the mission to clean both the earth and the oceans, Oceanic is a contemporary recycled polyester with a purpose.

Each year, 12 million tons of plastic enters our oceans, equating to a truckload every single minute and this problem is growing at a rapid rate. By 2048, experts predict the amount of plastic in the seas will weigh more than the number of fish.

Saving oceans one bottle at a time, every yard of Oceanic is woven from 26 plastic bottles. Dyed using cationic yarn, this multi- tonal textile combines and contrasts a light warp with a deeply saturated weft. The visual detail within its intricate twill weave creates a subtle pattern— enhancing both the color and construction of the textile.

With a palette of 16 refined colors, Oceanic combines muted, neutral tones with soft pastels and deep bolds. The collection echoes the colors visible on nature’s shoreline, as well as a number of trend-led colors.
