The plant cuticle is the very outer layer of leaves which protects them from uncontrolled evaporation. This wafer-thin waxy film enveloping the leaves and stems is responsible for the familiar way that water droplets run off in the morning dew or in heavy rain. This effect is the  inspiration for ecorepel®.

ecorepel® ® uses a highly functional, permanently odorless high-tech finish that mimics the natural protective mechanism of plants. The finish spirals around the individual fibers in a thin film, reducing surface tension. This creates the repellent effect that causes water droplets and watery dirt to roll off the textile surface. Breathability is not impaired, the handle remains pleasantly soft, and the textiles stay dry and clean.
ecorepel® completely eliminates fluorocarbon components and is therefore PFC-free. The technology is bluesign® certified, which means that it meets strict environmental and health standards. ecorepel® allows products to be made that meet the demands of modern outdoor activities without harming the environment.It is a sustainable solution that prioritizes the protection of nature and the health of people and the environment.
