FLEECE COMPONENT: INSULATION THANKS TO AIR
The mission of the fleece component is to trap air thanks to the volume created by its texture (and the brushing of the knit).
This air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm.
We conduct numerous laboratory tests to validate the highest standards in terms of durability: a resistance test to abrasion and friction to ensure that the fleece does not pill, a colour fastness test to check the behaviour and resistance of the colours and an ageing test to check that repeated washing does not alter the properties of the fabric, its behaviour, its thickness or its appearance.
WHERE DO OUR FLEECES COME FROM?
Created in our international design centre at the foot of Mont Blanc in France, this fleece is then manufactured by our suppliers in Vietnam and Bangladesh.
We collaborate closely with these partners who have real expertise in the manufacture of our fleeces.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.
Product design: our expertise
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.
