Extending a partnership based upon shared values, VENTILE will again be working with Nicolas Rochat on his latest venture, MOVER SPORTSWEAR; they first began working together in 2017. The two Swiss sustainability focused brands will come together on a series of pieces showcasing Ventile fabric that focuses on developing sportswear and outdoor clothing pieces that do not require plastic-based fabric blends, coatings and components.
The collection includes the Mover Ventile Swisswool Blouson made from 100% recycled Ventile ECO 400 RCO fabric, featuring alpaca wool insulation and a breathable downproof cotton lining. Ventile Eco Recycled fabric is made from 100% recycled cotton and is the only fabric of its kind currently on the market.
Alongside this sits the soon-to-be-launched Mover Ventile Shell Jacket, a lightweight outerwear piece designed for layering and made from Ventile L35 ORG, an organic cotton fabric. The ergonomic design includes an adjustable hood, cotton tape, smart hidden pockets and double-lap felled seams.
Ventile Marketing Manager Daniel Odermatt said, “Our partnership with Mover shows that the momentum for sustainable, plastic-free items is gaining pace. Throughout the globe we are seeing a trend toward the end of single-use plastics and it is great to see the same sentiment gaining traction in the textile world too.”
CEO and founder of Mover Sportswear Nicolas Rochat said, “When I started Mover Sportswear my aim was clear; STOP PLASTIC. When looking for partners for our new lines, it was an obvious choice to go with Ventile. Known for its PFC-free 100% cotton fabrics and high-quality performance fabrics, we knew that Ventile could deliver on our two main objectives; to produce a garment removed of plastic and to provide a premium product to our customers.”
Ventile fabric was developed in England in 1943 and is a breathable, all-weather, natural fabric. Today, Ventile offer a range of PFC-free Eco fabrics from 100% recycled cotton fabric through to fabric blended with organic cotton hemp, and linen.
