Technical information


The fabric offers the best protection from the sun: long sleeves, trousers and hats with wide edges. Attention, 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. the label UPF 40+/ 50+ guarantees compliance with European standards. The indication UPF 40+ means that 97.5% of rays are blocked, 50+ that over 98% of rays are blocked.


Resistance to wear and abrasion test: for example, we check that the 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.


Created in our international design centre at the foot of the Mont Blanc in France, this cap is then manufactured and assembled by our suppliers in China.
They are partners that have genuine expertise in making caps and with whom we work in close collaboration.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.
