ECO PERFORMANCE AWARD
Changing product (stories) clustered around a special theme can be found here. Single items might not be revolutionary new or innovative, but suddenly one theme can be found in various articles and forms a whole story...
Items that are interesting enough to form a story and to roll out the story behind the products.
All reflective elements that support the idea of visibility and are not made of fabric. This includes items like labels, patches, piping, tapes, cords, zippers and zipper pullers. The reflective elements can be cut out, tailored, pressed, or printed.
All elements added to the fabric or clothing for the purpose of completing the design or highlighting information or the brand. In this category you find other logo elements, size or model distinctions, design elements, hang tags and labels. The labels and patches can be made of various materials like leather, cork, fabric, synthetics or silicon and can be either sown or glued.
All print products for clothing, bags, and shoes – transfer printing with the feel of textiles or applied to textile surfaces. These are high quality, fine print transfer printing techniques or 3-D prints on fabric.
All elastic or non-elastic fabric tapes in the context of manufacturing of textiles or accessories which are glued, bonded or sealed. Selected applications include: design elements in sealing seams or in waistbands of snow guards or bike pants.
Small detail accessories on clothing, backpacks, bags, and shoes such as buttons, pressure snaps, strings, stoppers, zipper pullers, eyelets, rivets, and rubber strips. However, not for accessories that belong to one of the categories: zippers, tapes, labels, and transfers.
All kinds of zippers for use in clothing, bags, backpacks or shoes. A most diverse range of materials can be used, all sorts and sizes of teeth and sliders. Offered with various advantages such as waterproof designs, solutions for stretch fabrics or even special designs like uneven zippers.
Various detailing solutions in textile processing and marketing. For example, special processing and printing techniques, special sewing methods, or even all sorts of packaging, like boxes, displays, or banderoles.
Products that cannot be used independently and require a carrier material, such as padding materials, meshes, linings, shock absorption, or trimmings. These also include textile workmanships that combine padding with bonding or padding with quilting, and the special production methods required for such material designs.
Fillers for clothing that allow climate management, i.e., warming or cooling properties. These can be synthetic fibers, natural fibers, and blended fibers.
