Leading the way with recycled custom sportswear.

Break boundaries

Scimitar were the UK’s first custom sportswear manufacturer to offer recycled, sustainable polyester options.

Back in 2018, we developed a range of six core products that were available to be produced in 100% recycled polyester.

Now, thanks to our ongoing commitment to a sustainable sportswear future, we have extended that number to over 100 products.

From our core range of running vests, running t-shirts and cycling jerseys to the likes of base layers, leggings and shorts, we’re not stopping now. Our Garment Technologists are working hard to continue adding new products to our sustainable range.

All of our Qwick-Dri™ recycled range also benefits from a FREE UPF upgrade, helping protect the skin from dangerous sun rays.


What is Scimitar recycled sportswear?

Every single minute, it’s estimated that one million plastic bottles are sold globally. 

That’s where we come in with the use of rPET in our custom sportswear.

rPET is the short name for recycled polyethylene tetraphyte (or recycled polyester). It’s created by a factory process of cleaning, shredding and yarning plastic bottles into a workable fabric.

For each recycled custom t-shirt we produce, we re-use six plastic bottles, preventing them from going to landfill or becoming ocean waste.

Why Scimitar?

When it comes to recycled custom sportswear, we’re proud to be amongst the UK’s leading brands. 

With each sport and sector boasting a number of products that are available in 100% recycled polyester, our whole business is shaped on a greener future which utilises recycled polyester at every avenue.

Couple that with innovations like our FREE UPF protection upgrade for our Qwick-Dri™ range of apparel for a totally unrivalled offering.

Besides the production of our recycled sportswear, we’ve made big changes to the way we work and operate.

We plant 285 trees every month, and have offset the carbon footprint of our UK operations and staff. Our investment helps fund international initiatives which helps reduce carbon dioxide production on every continent.

We’re even looking at brand new ways to package our apparel that is made with sustainably-sourced paper.

It’s all formed under our Recycle Reduce & Repurpose mantra, which you can find out more about by clicking below.

Our personable customer service is second to none.

Every Scimitar client benefits from having a team of two Account Managers. 

By providing a team of two, we’re able to offer 360° account management from initial enquiry to the delivery of your goods and any re-orders.

Your Account Management team will work together to offer you a seamless, personable service that’s unlike anything else out there.

As we continue to develop new recycled products, your account managers will let you know as and when they become available.

We’re also here to listen. If there’s a product you think would be great made with sustainable fabrics, let us know and the team can look into it on your behalf.

Recycle, Reduce, Repurpose

Our mantra of sustainability.
From a commitment to using recycled polyester as standard by 2025 to developing eco-friendly packaging, explore our vision today.


Carbon negative UK operations.
Every month, Scimitar funds the planting of 280 fully-traced trees in both rainforests & the UK, equivalent to 26.49 tonnes of carbon reduction. 


Unprecedented recycling of used kit.
In partnership with Tag Rugby Trust & National Police Aid Convoy, we’ll pick up disused/old sportswear from our clients when we deliver their new kit.


Differences don't exist.

Recycled sportswear is no different from that of traditional polyester.

The goal was always to ensure that our recycled custom sportswear products look, feel and act exactly the same, and are the same in terms of composition. Couple that with the same comfortable fit and a super-flyweight composition for the UK’s best range of recycled sportswear.

We’re also proud to offer sustainable cotton options for leisurewear and hoodies, as well as our cut & sew ranges. Why would you opt for traditional polyester & cotton options when you can promote, market and wear sportswear made with recycled polyester & sustainable cotton?
