Eco Tech: Behind the Design

We as The Behrens Group, Manchester’s oldest textile company, are proud to announce the launch of our first sustainably produced teamwear range. Eco Tech is made from recycled premium technical fabrics and offers wholly inclusive sizing options. With over 180 years of textile innovation under our belt, Eco Tech holds significant testimony to the excellence we deliver amongst leading distributors and suppliers alike, across the globe.

Our team leads you through the launch:

With climate change and inclusivity being two of the most talked about social issues on the planet, we’ve asked ourselves: how have these concerns filtered into the textile market, and how can we provide an answer, given our extensive expertise in the textile industry? So, we’ve launched a range that focuses on sustainability whilst also being our first range available in specific Male, Female & Youth fits.

As an extension to which sustainability is enshrined in our company motto; ‘to be, rather than to seem’, all fabrics used within the Eco Tech range are GRS Certified. By using recycled polyester (also known as rPET), Eco Tech gives second life to materials that would otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. More so, rPET requires less resource and far less energy to create, compared to virgin polyester. The result? A significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

Subsequently, Eco Tech is one of the first planet conscious teamwear collection available to the B2B market at large! The range can be offered across a wide range of sectors, including corporate uniform, merchandise or fanwear (primarily having been created to service the teamwear and sports leisure market).

Our team continues by thanking their customers:

We’re elated to give back to our clients with Eco Tech, which offers the very first white label sustainable sportwear collection with a comprehensive range of ladies’ specific garments. With the help of some of the industry’s leading garment technicians, we’ve been able to ensure an exceptional range that’s comfortable, technical, and available to everyone!

Providing the perfect blend of comfort, fit, and feel that’s versatile for use on and off field, Eco Tech offers a wide range of performance garments, such as an advanced selection of ladieswear. Additionally, we’ve partnered with a DTF specialist company to help support and deliver incredible bespoke prints for our customers, as well!

Our team closes their statement to reveal:

The best part? Eco Tech is just the start. We have several projects already in motion all with a common goal: to make sportswear more sustainable and inclusive. Watch this space!
