GARMENT TECHNOLOGY & STANDARDS

  • Bluesign© is a system that provides safer and more sustainable environments for people to work and live in. Powered by a holistic approach, Bluesign© traces each textile’s path along the manufacturing process, making improvements at every stage from factory floor to finished product. It changes the environmental impact of textiles for good;
  • OEKO-TEX® - STANDARD 100 is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. The test is conducted by independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes on the basis of OEKO-TEX's® extensive criteria catalog;
  • ecorepel® and ecorepel Bio® are based on long paraffin chains that wrap themselves in a spiral around the individual fibers - this reduces the surface tension so that water droplets and even aqueous dirt simply run off. Breathability and comfort are not impacted and the feel remains pleasantly soft;
  • 3XDRY® and 3XDRY Bio®  provide elevated water and dirt repellency to the outside of a garment.  At the same time, on inside perspiration is quickly absorbed and transferred away from the body and moisture is distributed over the surface and evaporates rapidly.  As a result, with 3XDRY® garments dry much faster in comparison to garments using conventional legacy textiles; 
  • coldblack® is a finishing technology designed for textiles that are exposed to sunlight over extended periods. coldblack® prevents the textile from heating up and provides reliable protection from UV rays. For this twofold sun protection, coldblack® combines unusual features: absorption and reflection.
