Can we have cotton gear that perform like synthetic?

We love:

  • Being outdoors in comfortable and durable clothes
  • …that are highly breathable
  • … and keep us dry when the weather take a turn for the worse

But did you know?

  • Most active wear are made of synthetic fibers which are more durable than cotton, but they contribute to microplastic pollution
  • Cotton tends to retain humidity from the rain and mist
  • Some durable water repellent treatments are based on bioaccumulative perfluorinated compounds (PFC)
