“Tapping into OGIO heritage is extremely important to our future success. Durability and organization have both been major design pillars since the brand’s inception and this collection exceeds our expectations” said Jeff Rang, design director at OGIO.
“Sustainability and the recycled content used in these products create a new pillar for u, and we will keep building upon that eco premise,” said Rang.
Each product in the OGIO Alpha Convoy Collection is built with premium and sustainable components and materials, including Cordura EcoMade fabric. This fabric is made with recycled polyester yarns that are specifically engineered to meet the performance and durability specifications of the Cordura brand.
A major benefit of using this material is that it reduces energy consumption and extends the useful life of polyester. The fabric is made by collecting, cleaning and grounding post-consumer plastic water bottles into flakes before melting and spinning them into yarn which is then woven into the fabric.
