84% Recycled Polyester / 16% Elastane
We use recycled polyester from used plastic bottles. A fabric is made through the process of milling, melting and weaving. Around 50 bottles are used to make a performance jacket. For a boardshort, two dozen.
Longterm factory process improvement
Since 2009 only 2 factories produce more than 80% of our products and we have been business partners. It is a key benefit to involve our suppliers and get involved in the supply chain.
Beyond the basic business relationship between a brand and its suppliers, a long term partnership allows to build trust, gain knowledge and find solutions to specific environmental and social issues.
48 000 km car saved for the whole gloves collection
We are able to track our carbon footprint at each processing stage of a product’s lifecycle. From the raw materials to the factory and from transportation to product use and end of life. We can assess and compare our production to a conventional industrial production, then translate our emissions-savings into kilometers travelled by car, for a clear and understandable information.
Additionally, we use Higg Index as a tool to assess the impact of the raw materials on different aspects (carbon emissions, water consumption and water eutrophication) and guide design.
Polartec® Power Stretch®
Polartec® Power Stretch® was developed to expand our base fabric’s durability and range of motion. By utilizing elastic fibers with enhanced resilience in our stretch construction, we made a performance-fit base fabric that can handle the pressure of demanding physical activities. It also keeps you dry when you sweat and provides warmth.
