Recyclable fabric

Together with our wear2wear™ core partners, Schoeller Textil AG, Sympatex Technologies and Carl Weiske we have developed a fully recyclable 3-layer laminate, produced under the stringent  bluesign® criteria.

Dissolvable yarn

The wear2wear™ technology partner  Climatex® supports with their patented yarn which dissolves in boiling water, making disasembly and separation of the jacket's components an uncomplicated procedure.

Clever solutions

Integrated magnets ensure that pockets can be closed safely and on top the magnetic mechanism can be easily removed during disasembly and recycling of the jacket after its life cycle.

Single piece zipper

The wear2wear™ jacket zipper is a single piece and the wearer can adjust the height of closing of the jacket and hood freely to its needs. The zipper is sewn in with the patented Climatex® yarn and can be removed before recycling in one go and be reused or recycled on its own.e
