Schoeller Textil AG awarded PV's Innovation 2010 prize for energear

Premiere Vision in Paris awards Innovation 2010 prize to Schoeller Textil AG for a schoeller-shape fabric with energear

Paris/Sevelen, 16 September 2010: The second annual PV Awards were presented in Paris. From 113 nominees, the international jury found a winner for each of five categories. Schoeller Textil AG won the “Innovation Prize 2010” with the new technology called energear ™. The fabric presented is from the schoeller®-shape group and was recognized as "the most innovative, the most intelligent, the most technological and creative."

Apparent contradictions between tradition and technology merge in this authentic wool quality from Schoeller Textil AG. The winner of the Innovation Prize 2010 combines refined elegance with exceptional performance underscoring the concept of wellness in the textile with energear™. The schoeller®-shape fabric features a transversely elastic bonded wool/polyester blend quality interior and exterior in an exciting interplay. The pleasant, smooth jersey inside is tone on tone with the soft outside. Maximum protection against wind and weather, exceptional breathability and comfort with elasticity further distinguishes this award-winning fabric. It provides protection and elegance in urban, travel or outdoor wear and has an extra dose of “well-being” with the new energear™ technology.

energearTM is the entirely new fabric generation from Schoeller Textil AG, which takes nature as its role model. With energearTM, a special titanium and mineral matrix integrated into the fabric ensures that the body’s Far Infrared Rays (FIRs) are reflected back to the wearer by the textile. The reflection of the FIRs promotes blood circulation and the increase of oxygen levels in the blood. This additional energy has a number of positive effects on the body, for example, performance enhancement and prevention of premature fatigue, as well as improved regeneration. In addition, shorter warm-up phases are sufficient for physical activity and overall there is an increase in concentration and wellbeing. Of course, other fabric features such as breathability, weather protection and elasticity are retained.
