Lafuma to display Newlife yarn made Eco Life Parka at ISPO

A busy year full of great new projects lies ahead for Lafuma, brand leader in the outdoor market, which “has made the mountain its favourite playground for over 80 years”.

Mountains, outdoor and love for nature are the core business of Lafuma, which “naturally” chose Newlife for its Eco Life Parka line, on stage for the first time at ISPO (February, 3rd – 6th 2012), the leading international sports business trade show at the Lafuma (booth B6 505).

Newlife is a unique, fully traceable, and certified (OEKO-TEX, GRS, PSV) system of yarns coming from 100% post-consumer bottles sourced, processed with a mechanical – not chemical - process exclusively and entirely in Italy. Newlife is a premium and sophisticated yarn, fully committed to technical performances meeting requirements for specified products of a wide number of applications. Fabrics made with Newlife are beautiful, performing and sustainable.

And the Eco Life Parka made with Newlife is the perfect example that creativity, innovation and responsibility are not just possible, but are a real key differentiator factor.

By creating the Eco Life Parka, Lafuma is able to associate elegant and modern urban style together with all kind of performances including protection, thermal comfort (thanks to its Climactive Eco Canvas 10000/10000 membrane and its ultrasound stitched lining combined with Newlife fabric) and the lowest environmental impact!

It is available for men and women, for urban or active wear. It protects against the rain and all components are made with 50% Newlife. The Eco Life Parka is designed in such a way that it will in its turn at end of life, be worked back into the recycling loop.

Technical characteristics:

Detachable hood – Center opening with double zipper – Pockets edged with piping – Snap wrist adjustment.

Technical characteristics men's jacket:

Materials: Climactive Eco Canvac 2L – 10 000/10 000 – 100% Newlife – 100% Polyester membrane Sizes: from S to XXXL. Weight: 724 g (L) Colours: dark shadow, black

Technical characteristics women's jacket:

Materials: Climactive Eco Canvac 2L – 10 000/10 000 – 100% Newlife – 100% Polyester membrane Sizes: from XS to XXL Weight: 575 g Colours: dark shadow, black and the story is not yet all done: on top of these key characteristics, we have the responsible added value.

According to LCA realized by ICEA (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale) in terms of environmental impact, Newlife allows the following savings: 60% energy, 32% of CO2, 94% of Water.

Just to be concrete, the production of 1 ton of Newlife yarns made with 100 recycled PET guarantees a saving of 76.66 MJ/kg 1000kg = 7660 MJ/t in terms of energy resources, equivalent to the consumption of energy resources to:

-The consumption of a truck which transport one ton of goods for 3387 km
-The consumption of gasoline to travel 2454 km with a car powered by gasoline.
-Transport a person for a distance of 2667 km with a car powered by diesel.
-The use of a computer with LCD monitor for 5780 hours
-The use of a laptop for 23,932 hours.
