Location matters. Still.
We predominately utilise fabric mills from Italy and Taiwan. We chose Italy because, to this day, they still produce the best warp- and circular-knits available to the performance market. Our close relationships with MITI Spa, SITIP Spa and others ensure that we are always at the forefront of textile innovation.

Over the last 5 years, Taiwan and the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI) have led a significant amount of the development in the performance market. We are now at the point where it can no longer be assumed that the fabrics from Europe are simply better. Competition is great, hey? We are keeping a close eye on this region for future product development, where you can already see some of it in our Elements range, and in particular our range of jackets.
