Materials Story

Hiking & Outdoor Activites

Outside begins at the front door which means sports that can easily take place on your doorstep are booming. Hiking, other outdoor activities and outdoor individual sports are experiencing real growth. As the days are finally getting longer, everyone is drawn outside. Not even a pandemic can change that.

Today the combination of different sports is becoming more and more prevalent, which is why the focus for new collection styles lies on multi-talents for more adventure and sustainability.

In this newsletter we present an inspiring fabric forum selection perfectly suitable for many outdoor activities.

You will once again be able to order physical samples and/or download the 3D files (.axf files) of the fabrics.
