Sustainability is an incredibly complex concept which we have great respect for. We strive to drive as sustainable a business as possible. In short we care about our planet and our fellow human beings.
We engage in personal long-term relationships with all our suppliers and carefully select them based on their values and ability to offer a professional and safe environment for all staff. We visit factories to make sure that the working conditions are ethical and in line with ours.
We care about materials as it is important to us to take good care of our planet now and in the future. We follow up regularly with factories to make sure production is done in alignment with the surrounding environment as well as general environmental conditions.
The windproof NORDBAEK robes and jumpsuits with fleece lining are all produced of SCS-certified fibres and consist of a windproof outer shell, a layer of isolating padding and soft fleece on the inside. They are made with the maximum possible level of sustainability within this particular type of textile category: Recyclable materials. All our polyester materials have had a life before so to speak - typically as a plastic bottle or another from of clothing - and for that reason they are produced without new combustion of fossil fuels. From a sustainability perspective, fleece is also incredibly durable and will keep the same high quality for many years despite being used in raw, wet and cold winter surroundings. In other words a NORDBAEK fleece robe is one of the most sustainable choices you can make within the category "tech textiles" from man-made fibres.
The windproof NORDBAEK robes and jumpsuits with cotton terry lining are all produced of SCS-certified fibres as well as OEKO-TEX materials and consist of a windproof outer shell, a layer of isolating padding and soft cotton terry on the inside.

OEKO-TEX® is the world's leading health label for textiles and is known by the brand 'Trust in textiles'. The label shows that the product has been tested and approved based on the requirements of the international OEKO-TEX® Association.
