Durability of the components
Resistance to wear and abrasion test: for example, we check that our fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in laboratories. Colour retention test: the colour fastness is verified to ensure that the colours do not bleed when coming into contact with saliva. Ageing test: repeated washing should not affect the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
We are aware that we need to act to preserve our natural playground, therefore Quechua is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its products.
This product is not currently eco-designed, however we are working on a daily basis to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and durability are at the heart of our developments.
The fabric offers the best protection from the sun: long sleeves, trousers and hats with wide edges. Warning, simply wearing a T-shirt is not adequate protection: the thickness of the fabric, the density of the knit and even the colour may affect the amount of filtered UV rays.
