Less than a week before the 142nd US Open Tennis Championships kicks off, sustainable accessory brand, Rothy’s, has teamed up with Evian to create a limited edition, tennis-inspired capsule collection made with repurposed Evian water bottles.
According to a press release, in 2021, the brands collected approximately 72,000 Evian bottles from New York’s largest tennis tournament and transformed them into a stunning line using Rothy’s signature 3D knitting process.
“To create the capsule collection, Evian bottles were blended with other recycled plastic bottles and then transformed into soft, washable thread, which Rothy’s used to knit each item to shape,” the press release said.
The limited-edition collection features an assortment of durable footwear, tennis gear and accessories, including The Slip-On Sneaker, The Visor, The Racket Bag, The Sling and more. For a limited time, you can snag these exclusive items at Rothys.com and Rothy’s New York City store locations, with retail prices ranging from $75 to $495. The best part? Like all Rothy’s items, you can throw every item in this collection in the washing machine for an easy clean.
“Our pioneering spirit drives the Evian brand to find revolutionary and sustainable ways to help limit packaging waste and promote recycling. This partnership has allowed us further our circular commitment and truly give our product a second life together with the sustainability fashion leaders at Rothy’s,” said Leeni Hämäläinen, Marketing Director at Evian North America, in the statement. “Collectively, we’re inspired by the sport of tennis, and after an exciting journey together over the past year, we are thrilled to introduce this one-of-a-kind collection to the world.”
