THERMORE - a thermal insulation for apparel
Thermore® was founded in 1972 in Milan and is a worldwide leader in the research, production and marketing of thermal insulation for apparel with operations in Europe, USA and Asia including production facilities in Thailand and offices in Hong Kong. Thermore's current product range includes Classic, Ecodown®, Rinnova, Pro, ARIA and EVOdown™. Thermore is a member of the Outdoor Industry Association (www.outdoorindustry.org), SnowSports Industries America (www.snowsports.org) and of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (www.cameramoda.it). Consistency and security is also earned for any Thermore® product, including hypoallergenic guarantees, thanks to the company’s commitment to excluding the use of PFOA and PFOAS, as recommended by Greenpeace. This has helped garner the prestigious Bluesign Certificate for the CLASSIC, Ecodown®, Rinnova and Thermosoft® products and it is certified GRS (Global Recycle Standard) for CLASSIC and RINNOVA. Recently EVOdown™ and ARIA got the Bluesign certificate and ARIA got also the GRS (Global Recycle Standard ) certification.
Thermore’s most innovative insulation solution recently launched :
The great novelty among Thermore® insulation solution is for the next season EVOdown™, a revolutionary product that stands apart from all other thermal insulation materials. It is confirmed as the only credible successor and current commercial alternative to traditional down fill.
Technically EVODown™ guarantees to avoid migration and clumping issues of conventional fiberfill because its unique structural design, best described as a ‘rolled free-fiber composite’, controls movement with its two external higher density webs surrounding a free fiber structure in the centre. This new composite ensures consistent high thermal performance, while maintaining its structural integrity through laundering and wear.
The research for alternatives to duck and goose down is an extremely topical trend in this very moment and EVOdown™ represents the best example in the market. EVOdown™was launched in the fashion sector officially during the last edition of Milanounica - SALONE TESSILE, and will be officially launched in Outdoor industry at the upcoming ISPO. For this occasion, EVOdown ™ will be also able to boast the recognition of the Bluesign Certification, a further confirmation of the responsibility that Thermore puts in all his work in the development and production. Soon we will be able to speak also of the brands that have chosen EVOdown ™ for their collection.
