PrimaLoft, the global leader in advanced material technology, further advances its mission to be Relentlessly Responsible™, focusing on its game changing 100 percent recycled and biodegradable* PrimaLoft® Bio™ Insulation and Performance Fabrics. Now renewable for use in a circular economy, PrimaLoft® Bio™ fibres have been proven capable of being chemically recycled and reused to produce new insulation or fabric fibres.
The team will explain more about these innovative technologies and how PrimaLoft has addressed the eventual end-of-life of a garment, helping to find a solution for the industry-wide microplastics issue.

The Restorer – Stand A4-416
The Restorer is a truly lightweight and hard-wearing garment that protects the user from the elements, but also from minor wear and tear. The main feature is the self-healing ISOCURE fabric that is lightweight and suitable for summer. This is enforced with durable, ripstop fabric to ensure a truly hard-wearing garment. Retains all core features such as water repellency and wind protection. This saves the consumer money and makes the jacket truly environmentally-friendly and sustainable.
Polartec – Hall B4, The Borderlands
Polartec, the premium provider of innovative textile solutions will be focusing on its Eco-Engineering initiative to use recycled and biodegradable materials across its entire product line.
In 1993 Polartec became the first to create performance fabrics made from post-consumer plastics – drinks bottles. So far, their efforts have resulted in more than 1.3 billion single-use plastic bottles being recycled into yarn. And 200 of their fabrics have between 50 percent and 100 percent recycled content. Fast forward 25 years and Polartec is the first to develop a mid-layer fabric that sheds at least five times fewer microfibres than other premium ‘mid-layer’ weight fabrics with its award-winning Power Air.
Polartec is working alongside two other industry leaders and pioneers in sustainable textiles: Unifi and Intrinsic Advanced materials. Their collaboration combines revolutionary CICLO® technology with Unifi’s innovative yarn products to promote biodegradation of polyester and nylon; as well as applications in polyurethane, sea water and landfill conditions.
The goal is to create the world’s first fully recycled and biodegradable fleeces and breathable waterproof membranes, as well as other knits and insulation fills.
The team will be on hand at OutDoor by ISPO to discuss their effort to set a new, higher triple bottom line standard for the textile industry: fully recycled inputs, fully recyclable fabrics and complete biodegradability.
