It’s time to move toward the Green Choice
Our history dates back to over thirty years ago in a small mountain village in Northern Italy. Our passion for winter sports and the will to spend days on the highest peaks inspired us to create the perfect gloves for every winter condition. Now, this is at risk. Climate change is getting more and more undeniable. The impact of modern production processes is not sustainable anymore, and we cannot wait without doing our part.
Our goal is to become a fully sustainable company in the coming years without losing the performance of our gloves. As of today, we have implemented the sustainability of our products, introducing new materials, changing design techniques and removing plastics from shipping and packaging. Providing the best performances still requires the use of non-sustainable materials. In our Racing lines, we still use non-sustainable fabrics. Our Research & Development team is working around the clock to design the best possible product, aiming for the perfect balance between performance and sustainability.
We use leather coming from certified suppliers. This is central to ensuring that the final product doesn’t carry a negative footprint. Gloves’ palms are now almost fully PVC free. More than 80% of our products are realized without the use of non-reusable plastic. We design our newest products with natural cloth, such as Swiss wool, Merino Wool and silk. Also, we switched to PFC-free treatments for our gloves. PFCs are a wide range of man-made chemicals used to waterproof outdoor equipment.
For this upcoming season, we developed our first fully sustainable model. The Animal Junior is designed with only recycled materials, making it a milestone and the perfect green choice for many young skiers. Now, we are working on several new models to upscale the range of fully recycled products.
The path to becoming a green company can’t be walked alone. We are working to establish a network of Green Dealers. We want that our effort doesn’t stop at the production process. Shipping, packaging and retail should follow our very same guidelines to make the entire process sustainable. Athletes and skiers are already onboard and working with us to sponsor a green approach to winter sports. The strength of our community is one of the many reasons behaviours are changing. This is leading to a closer collaboration with NGOs and environmental organisations. We pledged to help Stelvio National Park with activities on site. Also, we are now partnering with Save Soil, a movement funded by Indian guru Sadhguru that strongly advocates the need for change in people's consciousness and behaviour toward a sustainable world.
We made the green choice, now it is your turn to get onboard.
