Textiles made from recycled fiber
REPREVE® has transformed billions of recycled plastic bottles into durable polyester. Thanks to cutting-edge textile technology, REPREVE® offers greater comfort, durability and functionality.
Brands around the world trust REPREVE® to reinforce their commitment to sustainable development, as it is the only traceable and certifiable eco-performance polyester.
SPREADING SUSTAINABLE FIBER
REPREVE® is manufactured with less carbon, using non-toxic products. It reduces global warming potential compared with conventional virgin polyester.
REDUCING OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
REPREVE®'s collaboration with Oerlikon Barmag on eAFK EvoCooler technology has reduced the energy needed to texturize our yarns.
REPREVE® Smart-Dye™ and WaterWise™, two exclusive innovations, have reduced the amount of water and energy used in the dyeing process.
The COOLMAX® brand offers fabrics from a family of polyester fibers designed to help you beat the heat. This cooling technology creates garments that continuously wick away moisture.
Whether it's a hot day, you want to stay cool at the office or you're exercising, COOLMAX® technology wicks moisture away from your skin to the fabric surface, where it evaporates quickly to help you stay cool, dry and comfortable.
COOLMAX® fabrics bearing the EcoMade name indicate that the garment is made from recycled resources.
Our socks are made from these fabrics.
Use of DUPONT upholstery created from organic materials
These Dupont upholstery materials are valued for their performance, durability and ability to enhance the comfort and functionality of the products in which they are incorporated. They are widely used in the textile and apparel industry for benefits such as weather resistance, warmth and ease of care.
Stay comfortable in wet weather with DWR water-repellent fabrics
DWR fabric is a treatment used to make textiles resistant to water by allowing it to form beads on the fabric surface rather than being absorbed.
Textiles that regulate our temperature
37.5® technology, also known as Cocona, is an innovative textile technology designed to improve comfort, performance and temperature regulation in garments.
Designed to maintain body temperature at an optimal level. It uses naturally-occurring active particles, extracted from coconut and volcanic mineral, to create a barrier that eliminates excess heat when you're hot and retains heat when you're cold. This helps keep your body at a comfortable temperature, which is useful for physical activity.
Helps wick moisture away from the body faster than traditional fabrics. The active particles attract water vapor, capture it and release it, helping to maintain an ideal moisture level close to the skin. This keeps you dry and prevents the build-up of sweat, so you don't feel uncomfortable.
We are proud to work with Swarovski®, the internationally renowned brand renowned for its exceptional crystals. This collaboration enables us to offer you products that combine our expertise with the unrivalled brilliance of Swarovski® crystals.

Alcantara is a fabric with a velvety feel, synonymous with luxury and sophistication. Its history began in the 1970s, when researchers at the Japanese company Toray Industries set out to create an innovative material combining performance and aesthetics. After several years of research, alcantara was born and met with immediate success.
Initially used in the automotive industry, it quickly won over designers and fashion creators, who appreciated its soft, pleasant texture. Today, alcantara has become an essential material in many sectors, where it adds a touch of elegance and modernity. A case in point is Samshield, which uses alcantara to create models that are both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
The history of alcantara is that of a relentless quest for perfection, to offer consumers an exceptional fabric that is both beautiful and functional.
