Based in Tettnang near Lake Constance, VAUDE has been manufacturing high-quality equipment and fashionable outdoor clothing since 1974. By following carefully-controlled environmental standards, Vaude products are completely recyclable. VAUDE's continually-expanding product range covers alpine sports, cycling, skiing and hiking. Company founder Albrecht von Dewitz successfully converted his sporting enthusiasm into a business idea and today, VAUDE is a market leader in the field of functional sports clothing and equipment.
VAUDE has developed a new generation of softshell materials made from recycled PET bottles.
This new generation of windproof softshell clothing combines high functionality with first-class weather protection. For this purpose, Vaude recycles used PET bottles instead of manufacturing new polyester from petroleum. The resulting softshell material is exceptionally breathable yet windproof and water-repellent. This means you'll be well protected for your outdoor adventures without putting any further stress on the planet.
Insulation from recycled bottles
Insulation materials can also be made from recycled PET bottles.
"VAUDE's highly functional insulation materials, made from 100%-recycled PET bottles, offer reliable protection for winter sports. HeatSphere Eco is a new type of synthetic down and a great accumulator of heat. The puffy balls behave like down, are lightweight, highly elastic, easy to care for and warm even when wet.
PrimaLoft is also made from 100%-recycled PET bottles. It stops your body from getting cold in chilly, wet weather because it's quick-drying and warms even when wet."
