The California based company Global Merino has been awarded with the Eco Performance Award for its sustainably produced and biodegradable functional fabric. The winning fabric GM 1754 is made from 64% polyester and 36% merino and, despite being a blend, is categorized as biodegradable, due to the special polyester used in the fabric.

In addition to being made from recycled PET, it decomposes much faster than conventional polyester, the company reports. Performance Days, a leading trade fair for functional fabrics, will take place from 26-27 April in Munich, presenting the latest trends for Summer 2019, with a focus topic Biodegradable: Back to Nature.
