“At the end of 2016, we started to establish a framework for a constructive dialogue based on partnership with the ‘Sympathy Lab‘ where we can foster our exchange with current or potential customers on the topic of ecology. Here we discuss the first or next steps of sustainability and significantly enhance progress individually,” explains Dr. Rüdiger Fox, CEO of Sympatex Technologies. “And we can already see initial results: we have a series of new dialogue partners with whom we are currently working to promote the next revolution in the textile industry“, adds Fox.

“We have found the ideal partner with the worldwide leading membrane specialist Sympatex who will support us in terms of ecological textiles on the highest functional level,“ explains Lutz Mai, Brand Director of CHIEMSEE. “CHIEMSEE will use the environmentally friendly and completely recyclable membrane as of winter 2018/19 in its DEFROST clothing line. We are already looking forward to the next winter season and are excited to experience a longstanding and sustainable partnership“, adds Mai.
