Natural fibers with ecological high-tech finish
Cotton blends in earthy, warm shades or refreshing Cool Fabrics in the colors of the sea set accents while various graphic punch patterns lend structure.
Ecology, sustainability and naturalness are the major themes for Schoeller Summer 2015. Headlining them up is ecorepel® , the fluorocarbon-free finishing technology for natural water and dirt repellence. ecorepel® was recommended in the recently published Greenpeace study as a positive alternative to textile finishes containing fluorocarbons. High abrasion resistant, biodegradable and wash resistant: this ecological high-tech finish enhances various schoeller® -WB-400 qualities such as light summer soft shells with embossed dots in petrol and subtle orange or supersoft cotton blend fabrics in a sporty urban look.

Naturalness plays a major role in more than just the finish of the current fabric collection from Schoeller Textil. Warm shades of green, brown, beige and yellow, as well as the shades of the sky and the sea, dominate. Authentic cotton looks with ecorepel® work beautifully on the golf course or out on the town. The emerald green, bi-elastic schoeller® -shape pants quality is perfectly color coordinated with the sporty-elegant, very fine double face in the same green with vibrant red reverse.
At Schoeller, surprise effects are now being produced with prints. Whether in existing designs such as a cracking, melting sheet of ice or the customer’s own artwork, Schoeller offers light schoeller® -dynamics, pliant schoeller® -dryskin soft-shells or schoeller® - prestige fabrics that can be printed. A fascinating look is also created by large-scale dots on schoeller® -WB-400 soft-shells with colorcontrasting reverse.
Various laser cuts have a technical appeal and draw all eyes with a variety of graphic patterns. Some examples are a schoeller® - WB-400 doubleface in matt khaki/beige, as shiny, aluminium-coated schoeller® -spirit in refreshing mint green or as an airy light schoeller® -dynamic version in vivid turquoise or lemon. Inspiration for experimental ideas is also offered by unusual schoeller® -spirit spacer fabrics in loud colors and the ecological ecorepel® technology.
