Pioneer of the "Green Button": pos.sei.mo organic clothing

15 September 2019

We are one of the first 27 companies to be awarded the Grüner Knopf Certificate by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development on September 9th. Just in time for the introduction of the state's Grüner Knopf seal, we are launching our third label - pos.sei.mo organic clothing. Women's and men's T-shirts made from soft organic cotton are the first products to be allowed to bear the Grüner Knopf seal. With the additional IVN Best and GOTS certifications, our textiles meet the requirements of the govermental seal. The raw material cotton is obtained in organic agriculture from natural seeds, without artificial fertilizers and pesticides. The processing and manufacture of the cotton is carried out according to the ecological and sustainable guidelines of IVN Best and GOTS. The Grüner Knopf seal makes it easier for consumers to find their way around textiles that are produced in a socially and ecologically sustainable manner.

pos.sei.mo does the pilling test

22 February 2019

What is pilling? We speak of pilling when small fibers loosen from the wool due to friction while wearing an item of clothing and form pebbles. What about pilling with our products? We wanted to know and sent knitting samples to a laboratory. With the Martindale method, our two yarn blends were tested according to the pilling behavior DIN EN ISO 12945-2. The knitting samples were subjected to a mechanical friction of 1000 turns against each other. Our yarn mix of merino, possum fibre and silk achieved only a slight and isolated pod formation on the wool material with this high number of tours. The cashmere-possum fibre-silk mixture showed no change with the same number of tours. The very positive result is due to the possum fibre. This component in our mixture ensures that the nodule formation remains in the range of the natural low-pilling effect. This means that our knitwear will retain its place in the wardrobe of every wool lover for a long time.

The magazine 360 ​​Grad New Zealand reports on the program ´Predator Free 2050´ - a measure to preserve the native species protection of New Zealand

21 January 2019

Introduced predators such as rats, ermines and possums have long threatened the vegetation and wildlife in New Zealand. With 'Predator Free 2050', the government-supported program, new research approaches and technologies are to be developed. With the help of this program and the existing methods, native species protection is to be sustainably protected and freed from predators.

 

Nature conservation plays just as important a role in our company as the fair production of textiles. With the use of possum hair in our yarn we would like to draw attention to the threatened habitat of plants and animals in this fascinating country.

 

The article was made available to us with the kind support of 360 Grad New Zealand (1/2019).

Last year we launched the Summit by pos.sei.mo label with four knitting models made from the yarn mixture cashmere, possum fibre and silk.

Think spring, wear Summit by pos.sei.mo

29 March 2018

Spring is in the starting blocks. The icy temperatures are over, the snow begins to melt and lures the first buds on the branches. With the warm rays of the sun, the flowers show their delicate colors and leave behind the monochrome winter landscape. For our new fashion label Summit by pos.sei.mo, we were inspired by the delicate colors of spring. In the cool silver color and the pastel bloom we are starting the spring with a new yarn mix. The fine cashmere-possum-silk mix makes the knit even softer and light as a feather. What is so special about this spring companion? Find it out in the current magazine of natural nature.
