Fristads top off environmentally declared high-vis garments

Swedish workwear manufacturer Fristads continues to build on the assortment of environmentally declared high-visibility garments. This spring, high-vis tops and shell garments with an Environmental Product Declaration will be added to the Trofta concept. The addition means professional users with the need for extra visibility during work can dress from head to toe in garments with a smaller environmental impact.

“We are very happy to be able to offer a head-to-toe solution of environmentally declared high-visibility garments for users working within road, building and construction as well as transport and logistics. Later this year we will expand the range even further with garments for winter,” said Lena Bay Højland, Product Director at Fristads.

Last year workwear manufacturer Fristads launched a new set of style concepts, including two high-visibility collections – Stiby and Trofta. Many of the high-visibility garments will have an EPD, and have a lower environmental impact than conventionally produced garments– without compromising on safety or quality. 

Leading the way in sustainability
Fristads has a long-term goal to lead the workwear industry when it comes to sustainability and broke new ground by launching the world’s first environmentally declared clothing collection in 2019. An EPD, shows the garment’s total impact on the environment, from construction and material choices to waste in production and transports.

“I’m proud of the fact that we continue to expand our offer of more sustainable workwear to professional users, and that we can help our customers to make more conscious choices by using such a transparent tool as the EPD. Good work clothes should protect people, but not at unnecessary expense of the environment,” said Lena Bay Højland, Product Director at Fristads.

More sustainable materials and workwear for everybody
During spring, additions are also made to some of the other concepts in Fristads’ assortment.

Alnaryd, Fristads’ largest and most popular concept in building and construction, is growing with several new garments that are all made of durable, recycled materials, including a pair of environmentally declared craftsman trousers that are available for both men and women. The new trousers will be also accompanied with shorts as well as pirate trousers.

The high-vis concept Stiby is expanded with a shell jacket and a pair of pirate trousers in 4-way stretch to make the concept even more flexible for the spring and summer months. The new garments are made of recycled materials and have an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

In the Haverdal concept, a pair of shorts, a softshell jacket as well as a shell jacket are added in the assortment for women. The tops in the industry and service concept Skarup are updated with more sustainable material. Also, the popular craftsman trousers PS25 will be relaunched in more sustainable material and with an environmental declaration under the new name GS25.
