with HOW we do it.

This is the
philosophy we work with at Ternua.
The Ternua brand is worn by born
adventurers with an outdoor spirit who
are looking to connect with nature.
People who recharge their batteries
outdoors wearing versatile, high-
performance, technical garments with
unique design features. A committed
and sustainable brand that protects
the planet and people and whose
symbol represents the

We are committed to innovation and,

furthermore, to a sustainable
innovation in line with our philosophy
and the cornerstones of the brand. An
innovation which helps us and enables
us to design, manufacture and offer
high technical performance clothing
and accessories. Versatile and uniquely
designed products that respect and
protect the planet... and you.

And, committed to this innovation, we

approach the future under the
concepts of COMMITMENT and
WHATS NEXT. On the basis of these
concepts, we participate in, collaborate
in and launch projects that contribute
to and promote our values of
sustainability and innovation.

Every time we design a garment, we

take into account the importance of
maintaining the balance between the
protection that the garment will give
our consumers in the face of inclement
weather, the protection of our workers'
rights, as well as protection and care
for the environment.

That is why we invest considerable

time and effort in choosing the right
materials and implementing
sustainability throughout our
production chain. Our philosophy is to
do things right and do the right thing.
By this we mean that we are not only
concerned with WHAT we do, but also


Ternua's FW 17 collection is
characterized by sustainability and
innovation. 93% of products in the new
collection are therefore manufactured in
line with the Ternua Commitment,
representing the fact that they have been
made from natural, recycled,
biodegradable materials, organic cotton
or Bluesign-certified materials. In fact, in
this collection, the inside of the garments
carries a specific print with information
about the % of recycling and the origin of
the materials. Another point to
emphasize in this regard is that 91% of
water repellent treatments are now
PFC-free. The number of garments made
from recycled fabrics included in this
collection is also highly significant, as
they now account for 50%. The collection
also includes the first jacket designed
under cradle-to-cradle parameters, the
Craddle Jacket, made from used
garments while also being recyclable for
a second use, promoting a circular

The recycled down collection, which

Ternua pioneered in 2013, features
garments whose down is treated with
water-repellent treatment (PFC-free
Nikwax) and which are also available in
women's models for FW 17.

In terms of innovation, the FW 17

collection includes Ternua's first jacket
resulting from a What's Next project
(Ternua's name for its innovation
projects), created following a process of
co-creation with athletes. On this
occasion, the Altitoy jacket has been
included in the collection after being
tested by participants (including Kilian
Jornet) in the Altitoy Ternua alpine ski
race which took place in February of this

A real proposal for change.


A new way of interpreting

sustainability which is capable of
keeping the usefulness and value of
products intact.

Its basis: reproducing the behavior of

nature. If it does not generate useless
waste, why do we? What right do we
have? There are two types of
components in products: biological and
technical. The former are
biodegradable, i.e., they can be
reintroduced into nature in one way or
another when they have reached their
limit and nature is able to give them a
new life. The latter, however, are
designed from the outset so they can
be used again and again...

Here at Ternua, true to our

commitment to protecting the
environment and people, we
focus on processes that enable
us to keep our word and our
passion to risk. Because only
courage, determination and a
firm belief in strong values
can enable us to change things
and enable us to create a
better earth. A new earth..

This is an initiative launched by the
brand in 2015 for the development of
new products, which enables Ternua to
obtain feedback on the prototype
garment. In order to develop this
project, Ternua has collaborated with
Polartec, Primaloft and Pertex, among
others. Polartec, for example, has been
a strategic partner of the brand since
its creation and together they have
selected the most technical and
sustainable fabrics according to the
product and the activity it is intended

The Altitoy model is the first jacket

that the brand has made for
consumers as part of this project.
Athletes in the 2016 edition of the race,
professional athletes with an
important background in this activity,
tested the Lightning jacket for 3
months. Thanks to their feedback,
Ternua has manufactured the Altitoy
jacket and has included it in its
Adrenalite line for the FW 17 collection.

Following a positive experience, Ternua

has launched a new prototype this
year: the Aldamin jacket. Competitors
in the Gorbeia Suzien mountain race, of
which Ternua is the main sponsor, have
received a sample to test it. It will
therefore be tested over the next three
months by a total of 800 athletes who
will play a key role in achieving a
perfect product. This group of
sportspeople is joined by you,
professionals from the sector. With all
the comments that we collect in the
coming months, we will perfect the
prototype and manufacture the jacket
to include it in the SS 18 collection.

How does RED-CYCLE work?

#1 - We collect disused nets from the

Gipuzkoan and Biscayan fishermen's
associations in Bermeo, Getaria and
Hondarribia. In a first phase ......TERNUA
has collected 12 tonnes of nets.

#2 - The polyamide contained in the

nets (Polyamide 6) that can be used by
the textile industry is selected and, in
collaboration with one of the most
important polyamide manufacturers in
the world, AQUAFIL, it undergoes an
innovative and unique recycling process
to obtain the fabric ECONYL
( ), which
combines recycled polyamide from the
nets with other polyamide from rugs
and carpets.
Furthermore, RED-CYCLE is a project
that generates COLLABORATION

public and private, who are committed
to the future. A network of
protagonists who collaborate on and
are committed to processes that mark

who create, work, innovate and take
