Gramicci sets new industry standard for performance wear

May '12
As the outdoor industry's sole manufacturer of truly all natural, organic performance wear, Gramicci recently received independent testing confirming the brand's Natural Performance Technology (NPT) apparel performs as well, or better than, chemically-treated cottons or petroleum-based synthetics.

SGS testing compared Gramicci NPT shirts against popular market leaders' chemically-treated performance cottons and petroleum-based synthetic performance knitwear. Test results conclusively established that Gramicci products excelled in areas of moisture absorption, breathability, dry time, comfortable body-temperature maintenance and odor elimination.

Three years after launching Natural Performance Technology, Gramicci regularly hears from hundreds of climbers, hikers, runners, endurance racers and other athletes who say NPT is their new go-to performance apparel of choice.

"The retailer doesn't know or doesn't believe performance wear can be natural or organic. We are the only brand making performance apparel that is truly all natural and organic," said Gramicci President Marty Weening.

"Consumers don't have to settle for active wear that's been chemically treated to add performance -- nature has already provided us with hemp and organic cotton. Our proprietary weave results in, a tested, outstanding all natural, organic performance wear."

Gramicci introduced NPT fabrics with a modest selection of men's and women's separates in 2010. Now NPT collections have been further refined and expanded by 160 percent. The active wear collections are geared at anyone from a high-performance sports enthusiast to a consumer looking for fashionable, sustainably produced lifestyle clothing.

The raw materials for Gramicci NPT garments are grown without pesticides or insecticides that poison the earth, water sources and the humans that harvest it. There is little to no shrinkage, no twisting or torqueing of side seams. The NPT series is dyed with Gramicci's low-impact Bastion dye process creating Gramicci's signature "perfectly imperfect" look, and now, complete with performance that is all natural.

Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) research confirms Weening's thoughts, showing some $290 billion spent annually for goods and services focused on health, the environment, social justice, personal development and sustainable living in the U.S.

Gramicci's organic products have received certification from GOTS, OE Blended and OE 100 certified. Gramicci is also a fair labor manufacturer assuring fair wages, clean work environments and zero-tolerance child labor policies.
