An agreement to develop new, sustainable, high-performance textiles for the outdoor apparel category has been signed by Spinnova and The North Face.

Spinnova Oy, Jyväskylä/Finland, a producer of sustainable fibers, and outdoor apparel manufacturer The North Face, Alameda, CA/USA, in this way start a journey towards commercializing sustainable products using Spinnova branded materials and access to the first commercial volumes of Spinnova fiber.

The announced partnership aims to reduce impacts of the textile industry on the environment and the planet’s resources. Through their work together, Spinnova and The North Face aim to provide the outdoor segment with a sustainable alternative to conventional textile materials without compromises in technical quality.

Spinnova fiber is produced without harmful chemicals, with minimal water usage and with minimal CO2 emissions. It does not contain any microplastics and is 100% circular. The North Face is a leader in sustainable outdoor apparel.

Spinnova’s long term business targets include to reach one million tons of annual Spinnova fiber production capacity in the next 10-12 years. In February 2021, Spinnova communicated plans to build its first commercial factory in Finland to meet the growing demand for sustainable materials from global textile brands. The factory producing Spinnova fiber is expected to begin production at the end of 2022, along with Spinnova’s strategic partner, cellulose producer Suzano SA, Salvador/Brazil.
