Sustainable textile material company Spinnova is teaming up with outdoor apparel giant The North Face. The “journey towards commercialising sustainable products using Spinnova materials” will begin.
The North Face will also have access to the first commercial volumes of Spinnova fibre, produced without harmful chemicals, with minimal water usage and with minimal CO2 emissions. It is also 100 percent circular and does not contain microplastics.
With this tie-up, Spinnova is looking to target the outdoor market, a segment of the apparel industry that it notes is experiencing high growth, by working with The North Face to provide the outdoor segment with a sustainable alternative to conventional textile materials without compromises in technical quality. We have a fantastic opportunity to push the limits of our materials together with The North Face. Our goal is set a new standard in the industry for sustainability and high performance.”
Along with Suzano, Spinnova’s strategic partner, the factory that produces Spinnova fibre, production is set to start at the end 2022. The factory’s long-term goals include achieving one million tonnes annually of Spinnova fibre production in the next 10-12 year.
