North Sails launches sustainable apparel for America’s Cup

North Sails is the Official Apparel Partner of the 36th America’s Cup presented by Prada, the oldest sailing sports trophy with 168 years of history.

North Sails is proud to confirm its presence at the highest levels of the sailing world through the international competition that will start on March 6 and 7, 2021, when Defender Emirates Team New Zealand will challenge the winner of the Prada Cup , after the selection regattas that will take place. between January and February 2021.

To celebrate the event most loved by boaters around the world, the brand has created a collection for Fall / Winter 2020-21 consisting of 30 pieces, with a focus on outerwear and knitwear. The distinctive features of the collection are innovation and ‘sustainable performance’, for garments that are distinguished by details and cutting-edge technologies while respecting the environment.

The key outerwear of the collection is the Wellington Jacket, where North Sails research and innovation are fully expressed in a 3-in-1 jacket, made from recycled polyester 3-layer stretch fabric with a removable hood.
The inner part is padded with Repreve, a fiber derived from recycling plastic bottles – obtained with less use of water, energy and greenhouse gases than traditional fibers.

The use of padding in Repreve has so far made it possible to recycle more than 20 billion plastic bottles, underscoring the brand’s growing commitment to sustainability. The flap pockets and the double slider waterproof zip-covered closure are functional details that make the jacket practical, comfortable and waterproof.

Thanks to the High Frequency Welding Technology it does not use seams and glues to assemble the pieces, making the garment less polluting for the environment, and also giving an enveloping effect of continuity to the jacket.
With this garment North Sails has wanted to create a ‘garment of better performance’, concentrating innovation and manufacturing techniques in full respect for the environment.

The knitted garment, made of merino wool with hydrowool treatment and recycled nylon details, has a minimalist design and color block such as dark blue and pure white; sweatshirts and pants are made from strictly recycled stretch materials.
