Houdini’s new fleece jacket Mono Air Houdi has won the 2020 ISPO Award Gold. The jacket’s circular design and innovative anti-shedding fabric marks a new era in synthetic performance fabrics. The jacket, to be launched fall 2020, has been developed in collaboration with Polartec, which got success in making fleece from post-consumer plastic bottles in 1993.

Polartec is the provider of innovative and sustainable textile solutions.

“Together, we set out to create a technical fleece jacket that addresses the issue of plastic waste on a bigger scale. The result is a light, warm and highly breathable fabric that not only combats plastic waste by shedding up to 80 per cent less microfibers compared to regular high quality fleece. It is actually made from recycled plastic waste and thanks to the mono (not mixed) material, it is also fully recyclable,” the company said.

“The Mono Air Houdi perfectly embodies what we aim to do here at Houdini: Create products that work with nature rather than at the expense of it,” Eva Karlsson, Houdini CEO, said.

“With this updated version of the Polartec Power Air fabric, Houdini and Polartec have achieved a mutual goal of a durable, long-lasting and ultimately circular product,” Steve Layton, Polartec president, said.

The garment is designed to keep one warm on many years of adventures but when it finally wears out, the material can become new resources instead of textile waste.
