Durability of the components
Abrasion and friction resistance test: for example, we carry out laboratory tests to check that the fleeces do not pill. Colour fastness test: we check colour fastness to ensure that colours do not bleed when coming into contact with saliva. Ageing test: repeated washing must not alter the fabric's original properties, including its shape, thickness or appearance.
Product environmental impact comparison score
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifespan, using various indicators. An overall score is assigned from A to E to help easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information about its products. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
For the dyeing process, no water is used and it is carried out by a pressurised gas machine to set the colour directly on the fabric.
