Schoeller receives Keyhouse Hightex Award
The awarded material is a doubleface with smooth, color-contrasting reverse in ECONYL® yarn.
The special feature of this soft-shell is its complete sustainability; even the bio foam in the centre is based on renewable raw materials. Water repellence is ensured by the new fluorocarbon-free ecorepel® Bio technology, also based on renewable raw materials. Outstanding wind and weather protection is provided by the two-layer schoeller®-WB formula with climate-regulating c_change® membrane.
Schoeller textiles manufactured with ECONYL® yarn, an Aquafil S.P.A. property, are genuinely upcycled from regenerated waste material. The ECONYL® Reclaiming Program reduces the worldwide quantity of waste by collecting regenerable material from waste disposal sites, as well as ocean waters, and reintroducing it into the production cycle. The resulting yarn in no way differs in quality and performances from conventional textiles. The Schoeller fabric family with ECONYL® yarn encompasses a complete package with diverse exciting qualities such as ultra-light, bi-elastic schoeller®-dynamic (e.g. for windbreaker), very soft, fine schoeller®-dryskin (e.g. for high-tech sports) and a variety of light schoeller®-WB-400 weights.
