Wedze, a Decathlon-owned winter sports company, has introduced a ski jacket composed of recycled polyester using Resortecs’ SmartStitch technology. According to Resortecs, its Smart Stitch and Smart Disassembly technologies allow fashion firms to create product lines that can be rapidly separated when they’re beyond repair by merely subjecting them to high heat.

Wedza investigated the use of Smart Stitch when faced with the issue of creating a jacket out of a single cloth.

Smart Stitch is a heat-dissolvable thread that can be melted away at temperatures over 1900C to separate the fabric from extra components such as zippers and buttons when an item approaches the end of its life.

The business claims that by incorporating the technology into Wedze’s ski jacket, all components will be more durable.

By incorporating the technology into Wedze’s ski jacket, the business claims that all components can be separated and returned to the supply chain more effectively. Following successful integration, consumers can return worn jackets that are damaged or no longer fit and recycle them.

The frequent use of diverse materials that are combined together and frequently impossible to separate is one of the primary challenges faced while recycling fashion, putting a pressure on sorting and recycling facilities seeking to identify the worth of clothing waste.

“We are pleased to debut a product with Wedze since, like the whole Decathlon group, they are recognised for their efforts to build more sustainable goods,” said Cédric Vanhoeck, Co-founder and CEO of Resortecs. The jacket looks fantastic, and
