Ventile® cotton is a high-performance cotton fabric that is breathable, water resistant and windproof.
The natural cotton fiber enables a wearing comfort (breathability), which can never be reached with synthetic materials.
It is spun, twisted, woven and dyed/finished in Switzerland, following the highest quality standards. The yarns are made of purely extra long staple fibers which are only 2% of the world's crop.
Ventile® cotton originally was created to save the lives of Air Force personnel flying over the Atlantic in wartime England.
Pilots needed a garment that was cool and comfortable in the cockpit, but warm and impenetrable if it came into contact with water. With nothing that offered this functionality on the market, a team of dedicated scientists pioneered a radical solution at the Shirley Institute in Manchester and, after several months of testing, Ventile® was born.
Ventile® extended life expectancy in the sea tenfold, which made rescue a real possibility. 80% of pilots who fell into the sea would now survive.
Ventile® was also used in the first summit of Everest in 1953 and by Sir Ranulph Fiennes when he crossed the Arctic from 1979 – 1982.
Until now, the fabric is been mainly used by Air Force units and Arctic explorers.
