The Swiss textile technology innovator HeiQ and sustainable outdoor clothing brand Patagonia are expanding an R&D partnership launched in 2017 whereby Patagonia will begin using HeiQ Fresh Tech odor control in its Fall 2019 collection.
HeiQ Fresh Tech is a family of versatile odor-preventing and odor-absorbing textile technologies that continue to be effective even after prolonged use and frequent washings, said the company. This product family is comprised of technologies that either prevent odor from emerging, absorb odor from the surroundings, or take both into action.
“While we were happy with our previous odor control solution, we were able to develop a better solution as part of our R&D Partnership with HeiQ. We are always looking to improve quality of our products, and HeiQ Fresh Tech will help us meet our consumers demands.” said Matt Dwyer, director of material innovation and development at Patagonia.
“We are confident our HeiQ Fresh Tech solution will be a great addition to the Patagonia product line, and will create the highest value possible for the consumer,” said Carlo Centonze, HeiQ CEO. He added, “The Patagonia and HeiQ partnership is based on our shared vision that technology can perfect our every-day textile products.”
