THE ONLY CANADIAN BRAND THAT MANUFACTURES ITS CLOTHES FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES

Founded by Cynthia Savard, ORAKI was created to manufacture high quality yoga and sportswear from post-consumer recycled content. Entirely dedicated to ecological sustainability, ORAKI uses recycled plastic bottles (Yes!) To ethically produce leggings and tops in Canada. His collections produce no waste.

Each unique design has been carefully designed by artists to make women feel beautiful and strong – both inside and out.

Cynthia Savard, a fashion designer and yoga enthusiast, spent eight months in a Canadian manufacturing facility developing fabrics made from recycled fibers. The process of fabric making so to speak from plastic has been filled with a multitude of roller coaster tests. For Cynthia, if she had the option of helping the environment by using materials that had already been used, she would definitely choose it.

With the help of her team, she managed to make fabrics with the same characteristics as ordinary polyester while being excessively more respectful of the environment.

Georges Laraque, an NHL veteran of 13 hockey seasons; a spokesperson; popular speaker; successful author; a fervent follower of fitness and well-being and a vegan since 2009.

He is a tireless volunteer and promotes healthy lifestyles. Oraki’s environmental mission convinced Georges to join the team. Research published by the United Nations has captured Georges’ attention. The study indicated that if we continued to consume plastic at the current rate, by 2050 there would be more plastic than fish in our oceans. Georges then decided to take action and partner with Cynthia to encourage people to buy clothes made from recycled materials.

From the plastic bottle to the fiber
