These are synthetic fabrics which originally come from petroleum or are coal-based. Here at David Luke, we use recycled plastic bottles which would otherwise end up in landfill. Polyester offers increased durability and diversity compared to natural fibres. They are good at keeping their shape, moisture-wicking and quick at drying. These fabrics are often used in school uniform items such as Blazers, Trousers, Shirts and Craftwear.
Cotton is a soft fluffy fibre which comes from the cotton plant. These are picked and then the fluffy formation is twisted or spun to make yarn. It is an extremely breathable, durable and lightweight fabric.
It is a very water-absorbent fibre meaning it’s great at moisture-wicking. Cotton is often used in school uniform items such as sweatshirts, polo shirts, shirts and blouses.

The reason we call it Eco-Uniform is because it is made from recycled plastic bottles, which means we make a really positive impact on the environment.
As a result, it has prevented 41 million plastic bottles from going to landfill since we launched in 2010.
