wear2wear™ is an innovative partnership of companies in which each individual partner makes a special contribution at a certain stage of the textile recycling process.


100% climate-neutral, recyclable PTFE- and PFC-fee membranes and recycled outer materials

As one of the worldwide leading producers, Sympatex® Technologies has been a synonym for high-tech functional materials in clothing, footwear, accessories and technical fields of application since 1986. Together with selected partners, Sympatex develops, produces and distributes membranes, laminates and functional textiles as well as finished products worldwide. The Sympatex membrane is highly breathable, 100% wind- and waterproof and regulates the climate. It is 100% recyclable, climate-neutral, bluesign® certified, and it received the ‘Oeko-Tex-Standard 100’ certificate. It is also PTFE-free and PFC-free. The technologies and procedures are based on the principles of ecological responsibility and sustainability with a special focus on the optimal carbon footprint. The lamination of the Sympatex membranes, with polyester-based outer and lining materials, leads to single-origin polyester laminates. This combination of materials provides the ideal prerequisite for a direct reutilization process using existing technologies.

Inspire fabrics – a new awareness for work and the environment

The sustainable fabric concept for high-quality workwear consists of 100 percent recycled PET fibers developed and manufactured into single-origin functional textiles using state-of-the-art production systems. PET bottles, which serve as the origin material, are transformed into polymer yarns and processed into high-performance protective textiles. Depending on the application, protective textiles must satisfy high mechanical and thermophysiological requirements. The guarantee of single-origin materials assures customers that Inspire products can be fully recycled again at the end of their life cycle. This creates a closed raw materials loop with negligible waste, reduced CO2 emissions and water consumption, and regenerated clothing articles. The application of ecological technologies can lend the fluorocarbon-free textiles additional antibacterial, water-repellent and dirt-repellent properties. Wind- and waterproof three-layer laminates contain the climate-neutral Sympatex membrane and are rain protection certified. Inspire products can be certified in accordance with environmental standards and manufactured in high-visibility colors.
