With Triwitex, the Peppermint Group has developed a yarn process that not only fashion and environmentally conscious consumers, but also the sharing economy have been waiting for.

 

What is special about Triwitex?

 

Steffen Lüdemann: Triwitex is a very powerful spinning technology. We can use it to make wool or other natural fibers much more resistant. For example, you have no pilling, so the fabric no longer fuzzes. In addition, this new spinning technology enables us to use novel raw materials such as biopolymers. We offer a process for many new, innovative applications and products.

However, the necessary power and communication connections are not always available.
