INTENDED SPECIFIC END USE
For all hiking and everyday adventures in changing weather.
With a production of polyamides that omits 3x less CO2 compared to that of conventional polyamides the reduction in greenhouse gasemissions is evident. The use of raw materials originating from renewable feedstock, namely sustainable plant oil and organic food waste, replaces the fossil resources which too much contribute to the general greenhouse emissions effect. The production process results in a 100% biomass outer shell. In addition, the face fabric, the lamination- and dyeing mills are bluesign certified and thereby securing the highest standards in concern of water waste and dyes. The membrane is electrospun resulting in an ultra thin, soft high performance membrane delivering high breathability and waterproofness. The garment producer enjoys a solar panel electrical power source.
