Our Recycled Nylon

As the saying goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” At Orso, old fishing nets are our treasure.

Every year, up to 1 million tons of fishing gear are lost at sea, endangering the lives of marine animals and our whole ecosystem. We are heartbroken to see marine animals getting stuck and slowly dying away, and that is our motivation to work with partners who collect discarded fishing nets and turn them into the soft, ultra-comfortable Orso fabric you know.

Orso is dedicated to reducing ocean waste by repurposing old fishing nets into sustainable, ultra-comfortable fabrics. Collaborating with partners, we collect discarded fishnets from the Pacific Ocean, carefully clean and shred them, and then process them into raw materials for our clothing. Our commitment to sustainability includes ethical manufacturing in WRAP-certified factories, guaranteeing fair labor practices and compliance with local laws.

How do we know you are being truthful?

Orso’s certifications come from third-party organizations that have no bias towards our company. They make sure their standards are met and that we are transparent with our community. Our certifications include the Global Recycled Standard (GRS), the OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100, and the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP).

How can your fabrics impact my health?

Micro-plastics can be scary, which is why we have opted for OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certified fabrics that cause no harm to both humans and animals. For better durability and to avoid microfibers that can shed from all synthetic fibers, we recommend washing our leggings separately in a washing bag or filter. Air-drying is also preferred.

How do you give back to the community?

Orso is committed to giving back to the community through partnerships with local yoga studios, offering free yoga sessions to foster local business growth. Furthermore, our collaboration with CleanHub empowers disadvantaged communities by providing employment opportunities for ocean cleanup initiatives around the world. Our goal is to reduce plastic waste in the oceans while simultaneously helping lift people up.
