We get to work with so many great partners here at Ventile®.
Design partners Ternua and Sasta have won two gold awards, in two European award ceremonies, in the space of two weeks, after selecting Ventile as their fabric of choice for their upcoming 2021 collections.
Spanish outdoor technical clothing brand Ternua won gold for its Miquelon Jacket, while Finnish outdoor brand Sasta won gold for its Peski Women’s Jacket. Citing a growing desire for sustainably sourced, natural fabric, the brands selected Ventile L19 Organic and L24 Organic, to create these award-winning outerwear garments.
The beautiful Ternua Miquelon and Sasta Peski jackets are a perfect example of what can be done when embracing slow fashion.
Ternua Miquelon Jacket
The Ternua Miquelon Jacket was announced as the Gold winner of the ‘Urban Life’ category at the esteemed ISPO awards. ISPO brings together the most outstanding products within the sporting goods industry and award gold to products that demonstrate innovation, passion, and creativity. Speaking of the win, Edu Uribesalgo, Innovation and Sustainability Director at Ternua said: “To win an ISPO award for the Miquelon Jacket is like winning at the Oscars. Innovation at Ternua has always been developed under the parameters of sustainability. For each garment, we combine a high level of design innovation with sustainable practices, which is why we chose Ventile® to be part of our collection.”
Sasta Peski Women’s Jacket
For Sasta, the Peski Women’s Jacket was selected as the overall winner of the ‘Apparel’ category at the exclusive Scandinavian Outdoor Awards. Discussing the award, Juha Latvala, Managing Director of Sasta said: “At Sasta we are guided by the philosophy of respecting nature and we have always understood the benefits and function of natural materials. We have worked with Ventile® since the early 1990s and continue to do so because it represents the marrying up of a technical performance fabric, with sustainable sourcing. To win a Scandinavian Outdoor Award with a Ventile® jacket means the world to us as it doesn’t just give us further recognition as a premium outdoor brand, it also gives credibility to the great technical products we make using natural sustainable materials.”
The wins are further examples of the work that can be achieved while championing sustainable sourcing and upholding the slow fashion principle. Combining innovative design with responsible production is the future of the textile industry, and is something we must all embrace.
