Zimtstern & Sympatex develop 100% polyester jackets

Sympatex, the specialist for high-tech functional systems for clothing, footwear, accessories and protective workwear, has expanded its successful partnership with Zimtstern which started during the 2008 winter season. In spring/summer 2010, the two ecological pioneers will be bringing two new functional and at the same time environmentally friendly, 100% polyester jackets onto the market.

Zimtstern is using the highly breathable, windproof and waterproof Sympatex membrane in its Men's Hint and Women's Zimek jackets. The membrane is totally biodegradable and can be recycled without leaving any harmful residues – unlike traditional PTFE-based membranes. These are considered problematic for health and the environment, as PTFE cannot be broken down by any natural process.

The Sympatex membrane for Zimtstern is laminated with an outer material made from recycled polyester. The membrane, outer material and the jacket's lining material are all bluesign-certified. This certification is a hallmark of environmentally compatible textiles and production methods, as well as responsible use of resources. Another plus point for the Sympatex laminate: absolutely no fluorocarbons are used during production.

The expansion of the collaboration between Zimtstern and Sympatex is yet another proof that highly functional clothing and environmentally sound production are not mutually exclusive. Zimtstern's Sympatex-equipped DLX line already received the ECO Responsibility Award for its use of environmentally friendly materials at the ISPO 2009.

Zimtstern is an independent label that has produced fashionable and practical clothing for the snowboard, skate and surf scenes since its foundation in Switzerland in 1995. Still managed to this day by ardent riders with high quality standards, the company's collections are now sold all around the world.
