Lafuma’s partner since 1992, at the time when the brand first launched their textile range, Gore-Tex® has revolutionised the world of outdoor protective clothing.
Why? Because of the properties of the membrane developed by the chemist Bob Gore in the late 70s: water-repellent, breathable, flex resistant, and long-lasting. Lafuma was the first brand to sell a Gore-Tex® jacket, the Shangar, for less than 150 euros (1,000 francs at the time!) in 1992, selling more than 200,000 units. Later on, the Twingar jacket was the first “3 in 1” design. In 2010, Lafuma was also one of the first brands to offer recycled Gore-Tex®.
Sharing the values of innovation, technical prowess and sustainable development, Polartec® has been supporting Lafuma in designing outdoor clothes since its textile range was launched in the early 90s.
World leader in developing and manufacturing technical fabrics, today Polartec® delivers over 400 different fabrics that provide warmth, breathability, comfort and lightweight for all outdoor activities.
For more than 70 years, Vibram® has been providing outdoor sports enthusiasts with technical and functional soles for optimal security. Stamped with their famous little yellow octagon, they excel by the outstanding grip they provide across different types of terrain.
Partner to Lafuma since it launched its footwear range in 2000, Vibram® has become one of the group’s key labels for each of its brands, including Lafuma of course, but also Millet. Vibram® constantly innovates to deliver product excellence, and, like Lafuma, it stays in close contact with its users to keep track of what’s going on in the field.
