At OutDoor by ISPO Matteo Tolio (Sales & Marketing Manager Italy) presents the Polartec Race Kit for spring/summer 2020 collection.
Established in 1906 as Malden Mills, Polartec jumped into life making wool knits to outfit US soldiers through two world Wars. Continually innovating, it was in 1981 that Polartec came up with its universal game changer: synthetic fleece. Named one of the 20th Century’s greatest inventions by Time Magazine, synthetic fleece revolutionised how we dress to go outdoors. From here ensued a number of fabric innovations and with it growth and the ever-pressing need for environmental consideration. In 1993 Polartec embarked on the complicated task of processing plastic bottles for use in fleece. Integrating recycled content into its product line saw the brand celebrating the recycling of its billionth bottle in 2015.
Today Polartec supplies the world with the most advanced fabric innovations. Polartec products range from advanced lightweight wicking fabric to insulation and weather protection textiles and are utilised by leading apparel brands, the US military and other global militaries. Polartec offers technical fabrics for use in any conditions and any activities from sportswear, cycling, snow sports, outdoor, active wear as well as work wear applications and upholstery market. Innovation is in Polartec’s DNA.
