Polo Ralph Lauren celebrates return of US Open with sustainable uniform

Polo Ralph Lauren has released its US Open Campaign and Collection in line with the New York based US Open Tennis Championships.

Like previous years, the design house has produced a range of uniforms for on-court officials and ball people. Designs take into consideration the brand’s sustainability commitment, using eco-friendly materials combined with performance enhancing special features.

The items are made from yarn made from recycled plastic bottles and tennis ball cans previously collected by the fashion house at the 2020 US Open. In collaboration with sports brand Wilson, the label processed the collected plastic into high quality yarn to use for the current uniform. The move was part of Ralph Lauren’s goal to further its circular production model, with the company stating it will carry out the same process this year, again in partnership with Wilson, for future materials.
