Partnerships at Ventile are something we are particularly proud of. We work with some fantastic brands across fashion, homeware and beyond. Most recently, we were approached by our long-term friend Nicolas Rochat as he looked to launch a new venture – Mover Sportswear – with the aim of creating a plastic – free fitness brand.
Developing on a partnership that is based upon shared values, we have come together on a series of pieces showcasing Ventile fabric that focuses on developing sportswear and outdoor clothing pieces that do not require plastic-based fabric blends or coatings.
The collection includes pieces such as the Mover Ventile Swisswool Blouson which will be made from 100% recycled Ventile ECO 400 RCO fabric and features alpaca wool insulation and a breathable downproof cotton lining. Alongside this sits the Mover Ventile Shell Jacket, a lightweight outerwear piece designed for layering and made from Ventile L35 ORG, and organic cotton fabric. The ergonomic design includes an adjustable hood, cotton tape, smart hidden pockets and double-lap felled seams.
For our Brand Director Daniel Odermatt “the partnership shows that the momentum for sustainable, plastic-free items is gaining pace. Throughout the globe we are seeing a trend toward the end of single-use plastics and it is great to see the same sentiment gaining traction in the textile world too.”
Ventile and the team behind Mover first began working together in 2017. The driving force behind the partnership was to produce garments for outdoor enthusiasts that did not need to use plastics and synthetic materials. Daniel said: “It has been an interesting journey so far for both Ventile and Mover and we look forward to continuing our work together and suppling a fantastic brand that has such an important message to share.”
