#2 Camping gear and apparel maker links with Spinnova for sustainable fibers

In Norway, outdoor clothing and equipment brand Bergans has tapped Spinnova, a Finnish maker of fibers from wood and wood waste streams, to provide materials for outdoor equipment. 

“In Bergans, we are always looking for more sustainable ways to manufacture both materials and products. I myself have been in the Finnish forests and seen how far Spinnova has come with its technology, and I must say it looks very promising,” says Bergans CEO Jan Tore Jensen.

Bergans Ambassadors, a user group committed to “testing products in active outdoor life,” will test the products prior to launch. 

Spinnova, which sources its materials from FSC certified wood or waste streams, says it has successfully started a test facility production line and is making plans for commercial scaling.
