The innovation in a nutshell
A biodegradable and mineral-based membrane for outdoor wear.
More in detail
To make outdoor wear withstand rain and harsh weather conditions, substances need to be added that often are harmful to the environment. Swiss team dimpora is here to change the game plan completely.
They’ve developed a non-toxic, mineral-based and fluorine-free alternative. It consists of a biodegradable solution that does the job just as effectively – but naturally. The solution can be added to any type of garment in a micro-thin membrane that shields against the elements in a sustainable way.
“We are thrilled to get the opportunity to bring our biodegradable membrane to the next level in terms of performance and scale up with the grant from winning the Global Change Award,” said Anna Beltzung from dimpora.
