Schoeller champions sustainability for textiles and technologies (7/24/18)
Upcycled products with ECONYL® yarn and the PFC-free ecorepel® Bio technology based on
renewable raw materials are two ecological highlights of the 2020 Summer Collection, which is being
developed and produced in the heart of the Swiss mountains. Color effects turn the functional textiles
into exciting multicolors with contrasting reverses and fresh, modern plain colors that can easily be
REGENERATED ECONYL® YARN
The textiles manufactured by Schoeller using ECONYL® yarn made from regenerated material are
genuine upcycled products. The ECONYL® Reclaiming Program of Aquafil S.P.A. reduces global waste
by collecting recyclable materials from landfill sites and the world’s oceans and returning them into the
production cycle. The resulting yarn is no different from conventional textiles in terms of quality and
appearance. The Schoeller fabric family with ECONYL® yarn encompasses a complete package with
diverse exciting qualities such as ultra-light, bi-elastic
schoeller®-dynamic (e.g. for windbreaker blousons), very soft, fine schoeller®-dryskin (e.g. for high-
tech shorts) and lightweight schoeller®-WB-400.
New, supersoft soft-shells with ECONYL® yarn are available with different backings and weights
depending on the situation. The lightest schoeller®-WB-400 radiates a sense of summer in fresh tones
such as melon, oxygen blue or khaki with a smooth jersey reverse in contrasting colors, also made
from ECONYL® yarn. A slightly heavier quality surprises in classic black with an elegant, navy blue
reverse, while the Bordeaux nuance of the soft-shell with its brushed reverse in stone grey feels warm,
soft and cozy. The fluorocarbon-free ecorepel® bio-technology, based on
renewable raw materials, offers sustainable water repellence.
The dominant features of summer 2020, alongside sustainable textiles and technologies made from
natural materials, are inspired multicolors. The comfortable, multicolored schoeller®-WB-400 qualities
produce completely new color effects and create a cheerful look – both for outdoor activities and in
urban sportswear. The combination of melon, ocean green and stone grey with white changes the
mood of the original colors and lends the textiles an unexpectedly chalky, summery look. Another
striking feature is the lightweight, white jersey
backing, which is only revealed at second glance.
The presentation of the authentic schoeller®-dynamic qualities is no less lively, ranging from mossy
green tones and blue nuances through to the brown variations of tree bark. The multicolors combine
perfectly with plain fabrics and are impressively functional thanks to the PFC-free ecorepel® bio-
technology, which also provides reliable water repellence. The basic qualities of the lightweight
schoeller®-dryskin trousers and jackets are given a touch of elegance in the form of a discreet sheen
and fashionable colors. In soft blues and greens, these supple all-rounders are highly wear resistant
and offer ideal moisture management through the microfibers on the inside. They also feature
ecorepel® bio-technology for water repellence.
