Made out of textiles engineered from 100% post-consumer recycled PET plastic bottles and genuine cork material, Recyclex is promoted as being “as durable and reliable as Samsonite’s polyester fabric made from virgin materials.”Cork material serves as a nature-conscious alternative for the polyurethane trim on the carry handles, logo, ID tag and back protection, making Spark SNG Eco a strong, tactile and trendy option for travellers.
