AYAQ values and commitments

AYAQ offers a collection that combines the technicality necessary to go anywhere, in any weather, with the durability of the materials and the eco-responsibility of their design.
Materials are selected and tested for the quality of their fiber (non-pilling, abrasion resistance, breathability, waterproofing, windproofing, etc.). On average, 90% of the technical materials are recycled, resulting from mechanical recycling that has less impact on the environment. Moreover, it is not only the fabric that must come from Europe, but also the material that allowed its manufacture. The technical raw materials come exclusively from Europe.

An example of eco-design

The SHANDAR Windproof Jacket is made of 92% recycled polyester. The recycling is done mechanically and not chemically, which has less impact on the environment. The jacket's fabrics are entirely European (French and Italian). Also, AYAQ has developed a technique that requires 80% less glue in the design of the windbreaker. Eco-design is present at all levels, right down to the assembly and sewing, which takes place in a 100% Green Energy certified expert workshop.

Among the materials, Merino wool

AYAQ selects Merino wool from the best in the world. All processing (cleaning, combing, carding, spinning...) is done in Italy. The sheep are raised in the open air in farms that treat the animals with respect, and where mulesing is strictly prohibited. The wool provides exceptional comfort, with a 17 micron yarn that combines strength and softness.
