Natural and from fair production
The Scottish golf clothing brand Glenmuir is continuing its sustainability course with its new spring/summer 2024 collection. According to the company, which is headquartered near Glasgow, the textiles are made from PFC-free and water-repellent fabrics and are produced without chemicals. Glenmuir is also committed to improved fabric printing and sustainable cotton processing as part of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI).
The Scottish golf outfitter, which focuses on natural wool fibres, is increasingly using plant-based dyes in its manufacturing methods and processes. All of Glenmuir ‘s cotton is carefully sourced through the BCI ecosystem, which helps communities in the supply chain survive and thrive while protecting and restoring the environment.
Natural colours and sustainable printing methods
The new colors aqua, inspired by the waters of Luskentyre, and apricot, reminiscent of the sunsets on the west coast of Scotland, emphasize the natural look of the shirts and midlayers. And the color hot pink is intended to reflect the vibrancy of the Scottish cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. The Superior Performance golf shirts are made from a highly functional, moisture-wicking fabric that the company claims offers breathability, +40 UV protection, thermoregulation and improved freedom of movement.
The print patterns on the shirts are all produced using the new, sharper and more sustainable printing method. Extravagant motifs such as dogs and lions alternate with different design patterns such as pencil-style lines, flag patterns or tropical motifs. The new jackets, pants and skirts have a PFC-free, permanently water-repellent coating.
