Performance Days, the functional fabric fair for sourcing in sports, work and corporate wear, has chosen two winners, one each for Performance Award and Eco Performance Award. The winner of the Eco Performance Award is Schoeller GmbH & Co with the article ‘Alpaca/Merino’. For the Performance Award, Teijin Frontier was chosen with the article ‘E245HCBF’.

E245HCBF, the award-winning 3-layer laminate is the perfect combination of top function and sustainability. The mono-material made of polyester not only consists of recycled components but is also 100 per cent recyclable. The upper fabric and the backing are made of polyester and high-performance membrane. With a water column of 20,000 mm and a breathability of 30,000 g/qm/24h, it meets the highest performance requirements. Thanks to the textured yarn made of 100 per cent recycled polyester, the upper fabric can also be produced with a melange effect. The DWR is PFC-free.

Alpaca/Merino, the sustainable blend of organic merino (70 per cent) and fine alpaca (30 per cent) comes undyed in its natural wool and alpaca colours. The various colours of the jacquard are created by the animals’ natural wool colouring. This means that neither dyestuff nor chemicals are necessary for the production, and the product is recyclable and biodegradable, even in household compost. Thanks to its knitted and felted design, the softshell felt is suitable for a wide range of applications, being windproof and water-repellent to a large extent, and at the same time very warm. With Schoeller’s EXP wool treatment process the merino wool can be treated chlorine-free. Alpaca/Merino is 100 per cent no mulesing wool, spun in Europe.
