Innovative Sourcing

This versatile unisex garment redefines comfort and warmth, all while championing sustainability. Ideal for both men and women who relish the serenity of forest trails or the excitement of winter expeditions, the ReBorn Pullover offers a remarkable blend of functionality and environmental responsibility.

As a natural fiber, wool is very popular for outdoor activities. A lot has happened in recent years in terms of the way it can be processed. In addition to many wool blends, circularity is on the agenda for many designers of wool products. With the ReBorn pullover, Aclima is setting an example in precisely this direction. Each ReBorn Pullover embodies Aclima's dedication to sustainable innovation. Crafted from Oeko-Tex certified recycled wool sourced from their own Estonian facility. “This pullover embodies eco-friendly design, with a focus on minimizing waste and contributing to a more sustainable future, says Ole Magnus Halvorsen, Marketing Manager at Aclima. The wool used consists of Oeko-Tex certified recycled wool. The unisex design of the ReBorn Pullover underscores Aclima's commitment to efficiency and inclusivity. It simplifies production and appeals to a wide customer base, making it a preferred choice for retailers seeking versatility in their inventory. End consumers are bound to appreciate the ReBorn Pullover's dual-layer comfort. Its terry knit exterior and soft brushed interior work in harmony to provide exceptional temperature regulation.
