Spinnova and outdoor clothing brand Bergans of Norway have entered into a product development relationship. The companies will be making new, sustainable concepts together out of Spinnova’s 0 per cent harmful cellulose-based fibre. Spinnova is a sustainable fibre company that makes breakthrough technology for producing cellulose-based textile fibre.

Bergans has been on the lookout for sustainable raw materials, and found Spinnova’s innovation fascinating. The collaboration is a great match between Finnish and Norwegian appreciation for sustainability values, high technology and outdoor life, according to Spinnova.

Bergans and Spinnova will introduce Spinnova fibre-made products at a later time. All Bergans products are designed, developed and tested in Norway, often by the Bergans Ambassadors; a user group committed to testing products in active outdoor life. After successfully starting its test facility production line, Spinnova focuses on end product development with partnering brands, while making plans for commercial industrial scaling.

Bergans is an innovative company that actively tries new, smarter solutions, materials, technologies and trends. Bergans is also actively committed to preventing the use of hazardous chemicals. Hence, Spinnova’s sustainable fibre, made 100 per cent without harmful chemicals, is a great match with Bergans’ sustainable ambition.

“We’re excited about this collaboration and Bergans’ agile, open-minded way of trying new materials before they are commercial. Consumers also want to get to know this fibre and see products made of it on a conceptual level,” Spinnova’s CEO Janne Poranen said. (GK)
