MUNICH – Later this month at ISPO 2020, functional materials manufacturer Sympatex will showcase what it says is the world’s first upcycled jacket made in-line with the principles of a circular economy.

The rEvolution Hybrid jacket comprises 30 per cent recycled textile material and 70 per cent recycled PET plastic and is the brainchild of partnering firms in the wear2wear initiative.

Since 2016 Sympatex has worked with Schoeller Textil, Glaeser Nachfolger, Märkische Faser and DutchSpirit to create the functional garment. With varied specialisms, it’s thought the collaborating companies could keep the jacket in circulation indefinitely.
