Schoeller Textil AG is a Swiss-based company which operates internationally specializing in the development and manufacture of functional fabrics and textile technologies for the areas of active sports, fashion and workwear. Natural fibres and bluesign system produced wool-based textiles are the focus of Schoeller Textil’s 2017 summer collection.

The latest Schoeller Naturetec fabrics use mulesing-free Merino wool. The bluesign system produced wool-based textiles are reportedly provide effective moisture transportation, temperature regulation, and heat retention.

Corkshell technology from Schoeller, developed using cork, is said to offer natural thermal insulation, as well as proficient breathability.

With corkshell from Schoeller, it is now possible to combine the outstanding natural features of cork with those of high-performance fabrics. Corkshell offers much higher thermal insulation than functional fabrics while offering both high breathability and wearer comfort.

Corkshell is made of an FSC-certified cork granulate that is a by-product in the production of wine corks. This natural granulate is pulverized and combined with the fabric in a patented process from Schoeller. Two corkshell options are available. One is a 2-layer fabric construction with a cork coating on the inside of the fabric. The other is a 3-layer fabric construction in which the cork coating is between a stretchy, water and wind repelling surface fabric and a highly breathable lining that can be adapted to the requirements of weather conditions. Additionally, cork has natural stretch properties and therefore corkshell can be offered in both 2-way and 4-way stretch qualities.

Corkshell offers up to 50% higher thermal insulation when compared to traditional soft-shells and is highly breathable. Corkshell fabrics are soft, very lightweight and offer natural antimicrobial properties. In addition, they offer high wearer comfort and aid in moisture and odor management.

Corkshell is ideal where ever thermal insulation is needed. Therefore it is suited for all outdoor activities, especially cold weather conditions, but as well for spring and autumn.

Schoeller has over 120 years of experience, posses the most modern equipment and manufactures in accordance with the world's most stringent environmental standard, bluesign.
