(Jackson Hole, WY – July 29, 2011) Mountain Khakis®, a leading mountain-inspired lifestyle apparel brand, announces its Spring/Summer 2012 apparel collection will utilize S.Cafe® fabric made from recycled coffee grounds.
Mountain Khakis’ new SS12 Approach Crew, Polo and Henley styles feature a single knit jersey made from S.Cafe® recycled coffee grounds by Singtex®.
A technical composite fiber, S.Cafe® exhibits inherent, permanent properties to this revolutionary fiber include odor control, UV resistance and quick-dry.
The S.Cafe® life cycle and patented process starts with the green coffee bean: the peabody. Spent coffee grounds from coffee shops are salvaged. Redirecting the waste away from the landfill is an added eco-benefit of the fiber. The coffee grounds are re-ground into super-fine bits and mixed with molten polyester, then recycled into a composite fiber. The fiber is made into yarn, which then becomes a knitted or woven fabric.
