Two market leaders, lululemon athletica and 7mesh Industries, have announced a strategic partnership to co-create advanced technical apparel.
This collaboration will build on the success of their pioneering engineered sensation, Whitespace R&D. The collaboration also promises to be an investment priority and catalyst for innovation through its creation of new fabrics and construction technologies, product testing and future concept development.
The company is located in Squamish, British Columbia, and 7mesh is near lululemon’s Vancouver headquarters. Alongside the strategic partnership, lululemon has made a minority investment in 7mesh, which was advised by Tim Dahms, Managing Director at Financo.
lululemon athletica is a healthy lifestyle inspired athletic apparel company for yoga, running, training, and other activewear. Working with technical fabrics and functional designs, lululemon works with yogis and athletes in local communities for continuous research and product feedback.
