Tech talk

Technologies, partners and certifications

To make premium and long-lasting products, we need to work with the best out there. These are our suppliers, partners, and certifications. 

Gore-Tex Pro

Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® fabric are durably waterproof and windproof, combined with optimized breathability—enduring products that maximize protection and comfort for the wearer.   The GORE-TEX membrane at the heart of the technology contains pores smaller than a water droplet, but larger than a water vapor molecule. This means rain and snow can’t get in, but sweat can get out.

Products with GORE-TEX® Pro fabrics are built for maximized ruggedness and are ideal for extreme and extended use.  It’s their most durable and rough Gore-Tex fabrics, made for outdoor professionals and serious outdoor enthusiasts who need the best weather protection available.

Pinecco

Pinneco Mantle™  is high-performance insulation combining sustainable solutions, excellent loft, no-silicone softness, and great thermal properties.  Its proprietary 100% recycled polyester fiber structure yields a rare combination of loft, compressibility and thermal efficiency. It is an extremely versatile all-around performer, suitable for use in a wide range of performance-driven outdoor products.

Pertex Quantum®

Pertex Quantum®  uses incredibly fine yarns, precisely woven to provide a very lightweight yet strong and durable fabric. Its softness allows down and synthetic insulation to fully loft, while the downproof construction prevents the down from leaking through the face. The fabric is windproof.

Pontetorto

A world-renowned mill from Italy founded in 1952. Specialized in technical knits/fleeces with the highest quality. 

YKK

YKK is the world's largest zipper manufacturer and is known for high-quality zippers.  The aquaseal® zippers are perfect for all sorts of gear where water and air tightness is a must. Smoother and more flexible, they offer optimum protection thanks to the film coated tape and the innovative zip element mechanism that seal the zipper completely.

High quality, 750 certified down

Our down products use the highest available down quality that we can find, and we only use down that is  Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified. This ensures that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to unnecessary harm.  All down in our supply chain comes from geese and ducks that are bred for food and none are force feed.

Down750 means down fill power from 750 to 800 cu in/oz with the percentage of a down cluster from 93–96%.

High quality,  RWS-certified wool

The wool we use comes from sheep that are non-mulesed, and Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) certified.  The certification ensures that sheep are treated with respect to their Five Freedoms and also ensures best practices in the management and protection of the land. Through the processing stages, certification ensures that wool from certified farms is properly identified and tracked.

OEKO-TEX®

OEKO-TEX® offers companies of the textile industry several certifications and services to have their products tested for harmful substances by independent institutes, and to optimize their production conditions and their supply chains with regard to sustainability.

bluesign®

bluesign® is a system to ensure a sustainable supply chain by securing resource efficiency, consumer safety, water, and air emissions and HSE. bluesign® provides this insight into the value chain from an extensive certification scheme of fabric and trim suppliers. Norrøna wants to become a member to secure our production from an environmental point of view.
