Bergans have worked a lot on using as much mono-material and recycled items as possible and thought about this from the very start of the design process. Everything from choosing pocket design to be able to have Natulon (recycled) zippers to each trimming is carefully thought thru. They have also worked a lot together with their repair department to make sure to avoid weak points on the garments and have used design that is easy to repair if something should happen to the garment.
As all fabrics and thread are made from recycled polyester (mono-material) you can easily cut off the other trimmings at the end cycle of the garment and only be left with a product that is made from recycled polyester that you hopefully can recycle once again. The design and the cutlines are also created to make less waste in production compared to previous Stranda products.
Fabrics from We aRe SpinDye® are used. By melting color pigments and the recycled polyester mass together, homogenously colored yarns are created, without the use of water. It is this exact step which enables to reduce the use of water in the entire textile production chain by 75%.
