Materials

We select our materials carefully, materials that have minimal effect on the environment, without compromising on quality.

We have almost 100 years’ experience in developing workwear with the user in mind. In other words, we are used to make garments that stand the test and withstand wear

For our outdoor collection, our aim has been to use materials that have minimal impact on the environment, still offering great quality. This has been possible thanks to our established relations and long-term partnerships with our suppliers from the workwear industry, enabling us to take advantage of their deep understanding and knowledge of our demands on quality and function.

Recycled polyester

Polyester is the most commonly used fibre in the textile industry due to its durability and strength in combination with good abrasion resistance.

In our outdoor collection we have chosen to use recycled polyester made from an already produced resource instead of using virgin fossil resources. The recycled polyester can be produced in several ways; either mechanically from PET bottles or chemically from various waste materials, for example production waste from the textile industry. We use recycled polyester made from PET bottles and only work with suppliers who can proved certificated for traceability.

Organic cotton

Cotton is the most widely used natural fibre in the textile industry and today there is no fibre available on the market that offer the same combination of high comfort and technical performance.

In our outdoor collection we have chosen to use organic cotton. The organic cotton cultivators strive to minimise stress on the cultivated land and to not use any toxic and harmful chemicals during cultivation.

Polaretch® Power stretch®

Polartec® Power Stretch® is a soft and supple micro fleece material with high thermal insulation capacity. For our outdoor collection we have chosen to use a recycled Polartec® Power Stretch® material.

Polartec® Power Stretch® retain the temperature without limiting the flexibility and movements during physical exercise. This versatility offers a flexible support and warmth so that you can feel comfortable. Polartec® Power Stretch® repels moisture in the same way as a core material but can be exposed to wind and rain when needed.

PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation – 100% PCR

PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation – 100% PCR consist of 100% recycled and reused material and has been developed to create a high-performance, eco-friendly insulation. The material is made from melted PET bottles which has been treated and spun to fibres.

The insulation is made from fibres finer than cashmere and which together form millions of air pockets keeping you warm when the temperature is falling. A water-repellent surface also keeps you comfortable during rainy weather. Thanks to its light weight and smart design the material is optimal to use for garments that need to be packable and fit in a smaller backpack.
