PYUA [ˈpjʊr] - this means "pure".
As the first manufacturer of 100% recycled high performance outerwear, we develop our products from the idea of circularity. Starting with design, through production, use and recycling, this idea is firmly anchored in our corporate vision. Because as a sustainability pioneer, we have set ourselves the goal of completely closing the textile cycle in 2025, without compromising on design and performance.
With the goal of becoming the first supplier of highly functional, recycled ski outerwear, PYUA put a big exclamation point on the entire industry when it was founded in 2008.
