A: The regeneration and purification processes are in Slovenia and Northern Italy. The owner of the trademark ECONYL® is Aquafil SpA in Italy and it is with them, we have our partnership agreement
A: The yarn is made from several different nylon sources, both pre-consumer and post-consumer waste:
Discarded fishing nets
Industrial nylon waste
Old rugs and carpets
Industrial plastic from landfills
A: The discarded fishing nets come from different parts of the world. Some of them come from Net-Works™–Projekt operating in the Philippines and others from Healthy Seas operating in Cameroon. There is also collections in Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Greece.
A: That depends on the fabric. For Vain Dane Athletic Sigge and Valdimar leggings and Freja and Maggie sportsbras there is 65% ECONYL® regenerated yarn in the fabric. For Sigrid, Holger, Tyra, Ran, and Sigmund there are 78% ECONYL® regenerated yarn in the fabric.
A: TENCEL™, Lyocell, and Modal are textile fibers, which are made from sustainable wood fibers. The wood is from sustainably managed forests. The wood logs become wood chips that again become pulp. The pulp is then made into fibers from which the yarn is spun.

A: In order to be able to throw the sportswear into the wash with the rest of your daily wash, we have chosen fabrics that can be washed on 40 degree celcius.
A good idea is to turn the clothes inside out to spare the clothes a bit.
