HeiQ and Patagonia expand their partnership with HeiQ Fresh Tech (11/1/18)
The Swiss textile technology innovator HeiQ and sustainable outdoor clothing brand Patagonia expand
their 2017 partnership to include HeiQ Fresh Tech odor control technology, with best-in-class
Recent consumer research shows that 72% of shoppers are interested in odor control technology in
activewear. As we are social animals, humans want to be close to others without having to worry about
bad smell on our apparel from ourselves or our surroundings.
To expand on the Patagonia/HeiQ partnership, and as part of the R&D partnership launched in 2017,
Patagonia will begin using HeiQ Fresh Tech odor control in their Fall 2019 collection.
“While we were happy with our previous odor control solution, we were able to develop a better
solution as part of our R&D Partnership with HeiQ. We are always looking to improve quality of our
products, and HeiQ Fresh Tech will help us meet our consumers demands.” said Matt Dwyer, director
of material innovation and development at Patagonia. “We are excited to continue to expand our
partnership with HeiQ to develop sustainable textile finishes.”
HeiQ Fresh Tech is a family of highly versatile and effective odor-preventing and odor-absorbing textile
technologies that continue to be effective even after prolonged use and frequent washings. This
product family is comprised of technologies that either prevent odor from emerging, absorb odor from
the surroundings, or take both into action.
“We are confident our HeiQ Fresh Tech solution will be a great addition to the Patagonia product line,
and will create the highest value possible for the consumer,” said Carlo Centonze, HeiQ CEO. He
added, “The Patagonia and HeiQ partnership is based on our shared vision that technology can perfect
our every-day textile products.”
