* The 2021 French Open commences Sunday, May 30 DRY-EX made from recycled polyester: One of the sustainability initiatives being pursued at UNIQLO is the development of DRY-EX products made of polyester fibers recycled from PET bottles. This unique material was made possible through partnership with Toray Industries, one of the world’s top fiber and materials innovation companies. New filtering technologies to remove impurities in recycled PET bottles allows for the production of high-quality specialty fibers. The new material retains the moisture-wicking functionality of DRY-EX, while providing a level of comfort that
allows players to perform at their best.
