Ternua (www.Ternua.com), a Spanish designer and manufacturer of technical mountaineering, climbing and skiing apparel and outerwear, is making its debut to specialty retail stores in North America with its Fall/Winter ’15 collection. The collection includes a wide variety of garments designed for four outdoor categories: Alpine, Mountain Ski, Trekking and Hiking. Every down product throughout the Ternua collection will feature 100% eco-friendly recycled down, known as Neokdun. The entire Ternua collection can be seen at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City (booth #34165) and at the SIA show in Denver (booth #1334).
“Ternua has been designing and making technical outerwear and apparel for nearly 25 years in Europe and Asia so we are thrilled to now be offering it to U.S. consumers who demand the same high-quality performance gear that European mountaineers and athletes use,” said Bruce Barrows, VP Sales & Marketing in North America for Ternua. “Staying true to the company’s strong sustainable philosophy, Ternua will also be the first and only outdoor brand that will feature recycled down in each and every down product in our collection.”
Ternua is pioneering the trend in using recycled down, or “Neokdun.” Neokdun, manufactured by Navarpluma SL, comes from apparel and bedding products that have reached the end of their product life cycle, and is 100% natural and biodegradable. Through an eco-friendly process that uses no harmful chemicals, the down is collected and sanitized so that it can be recycled into new down products.
Ternua will be offering four categories of outdoor apparel in the U.S. and Canada for Fall 2015:
ALPINE: Ternua’s close relationships with elite mountaineers has allowed the company to fine-tune garments in this collection for maximum performance. This Alpine line includes outerwear tested by famous Spanish mountaineer, Alberto Inurrategi and is for use in extreme conditions.
MOUNTAIN SKI: Ternua’s new Mountain Ski line was conceived and designed in conjunction with the members of the EMF (Euskal Mendi Federazioa – Basque Mountain Federation) mountain ski team which is sponsored by Ternua. This collection features highly technical and loose-fitting clothing equipped with the latest technologies for a sport that requires great freedom of movement and protection.
TREKKING: The Ternua Trekking line consists of garments that are designed for both men and women and is ideal for use in cross country trekking, approaches, etc. Functionality and design complement each other perfectly in these technical garments that are the result of Ternua’s cooperation with the world’s leading suppliers of high performance fabrics such as Polartec, Gore-tex, Primaloft and Pertex.
