With its Polartec Power Dry fabric, Polartec is steadily gaining the attention of outdoor apparel brands, designers and manufacturers, given its fabric creation’s upsides on environmental sustainability.
Primarily developed as a fabric that inhibits the issues of bacterial growth and pegged to offset the necessity of “virgin” synthetic fibers in the making of outdoor proof fabrics, Polartec’s Power Dry fabric, simply put, bears all the upsides of a “virgin” polyester made product, sans the production waste and environmental introduction of toxins that are involved in its production.
Brands such as Millet, with its Alpine Zip TS shirts utilize Polartec’s Power Dry fabric, along with other well known brands like The North Face (with its S/S Nihon) and Outdoor Research.
Given the demands often asked from in outdoor wear products, standard organic clothing items just can’t cut against the quick dry features and enhanced insulation benefits of their non-organic counterparts.
Polartec’s Power Dry fabric, appears to be a realistic and practical solution that addresses the concern of eco-friendly sustainability in the making of outdoor wear apparel items, thus its ascribed utilization in the upcoming release of a number of brands’ Spring/Summer collections.
As emphasis on the value in going eco-friendly and opting for sustainable production protocols and procedures have become more and more relevant to the signs of today’s times, different sectors in the fashion and apparel industry are not turning a blind eye to their responsibility to Mother Nature.
With Polartec’s Power Dry fabric, outdoor brands can readily make quality products that are well designed to weather the great outdoors, yet still be made with the ecosystem’s overall well being as a top priority.
