Schoeller is wear2wear partner for textile sustainability

Swiss company, Schoeller Textil AG, has joined wear2wear, an innovative industrial partnership dedicated to high-quality and sustainable clothing. Five European companies, representing each phase of the recycling process, have joined together to develop cutting-edge production systems to turn textile fibres from used clothing into new functional fabrics.

The sustainable wear2wear concept is synonymous with high-quality, responsible clothing. In Europe, textile fibres from used garments will be used to produce new functional fabrics. Depending on the area of intended use, they also meet strict waterproofing, breathability, protection, and comfort requirements.

The five European partner companies in the wear2wear cooperation cover the entire recycling circle. Heinrich Glaeser Nachfolger GmbH is a German fibre and yarn producer and the “recycler” in the loop. Märkische Faser GmbH (D) is the “upcycler” and fibre manufacturer. Schoeller Textil AG is responsible for production and manufactures sustainable, high-tech fabrics with maximum clothing comfort. The matching climate-neutral and similarly 100 percent recyclable, PTFE and PFC free membrane as well as recycled outer materials and linings are supplied by Sympatex Technologies (D), the ecological alternative among the textile function specialists. DutchSpirit is a Dutch company dedicated to environment-friendly clothing since 2010, with the mission to significantly increase the awareness for sustainable clothing and provide circular clothing in the corporate and workwear segment. DutchSpirit is the initiator for the development of the Inspire products and brainchild for the wear2wear concept.

At Schoeller Textil, the recyclable, functional fabrics from the wear2wear concept belong to the Inspire fabric group. These are high-quality protective workwear fabrics made of 100 percent polyester, which offers the greatest clothing comfort and feels just like cotton. Conforming to the stringent requirements of the bluesign system, the range extends from antibacterial knitted shirt qualities with outstanding moisture management to more sturdy pant materials with 3XDRY bio-feelgood technology and very light windproof and waterproof 3-layer laminates, which ensure a high level of climate comfort thanks to the optimally breathable Sympatex membrane. The “guaranteed green” Sympatex membrane is 100 per cent recyclable, PTFE-free and PFC-free, and climate neutral. It is absolutely environmentally friendly as well as skin-friendly. Moreover, it is certified in accordance with the strict environment standards Oeko-tex Standard 100 and bluesign. The water- and dirt- repelling properties are achieved exclusively through the use of the ecorepel Bio und 3XDRY Bio technologies, both based on renewable raw materials.

In addition to classic colours such as yellow, blue, or grey shades, Inspire fabrics are also available in EN ISO 20471-certified high-visibility colours and/or certified according to EN 343 for protection against rain. Due to the exclusive use of polyester fibres, Inspire textiles are very durable, which further helps preserve resources. In addition, their production requires significantly less water and energy.
