Workout clothing uses unconventional materials to help out the environment

Pistol Lake, which raised over $50,000 three years ago for its menswear that skipped seasonality and traditional retail practice, is back with a brand new tech fabric and eyes on high performance sportswear.

The star of this new crowdfunding campaign is the fabric. Called Eudae, it is a blend of fibers from the eucalyptus plant, used water bottles and Tencel, a sustainable fiber from wood. The water bottles are rerouted from landfills into factories which clean them and remold them into polyester yarns. About 10 water bottles goes into the production of one Pistol Lake long-sleeved shirt.
