UYN launches its ergonomic, washable,
 sustainable Community Mask

The Italian brand launches production of a new high-tech face mask for sports and community activities. 10,000 masks will be produced every day in the company’s headquarters in Asola (Mantua).

The plant in the heart of Lombardy, one of the regions most severely affected by the Covid-19 virus, has adapted to respond to the emergency. Trerè Innovation, a leading manufacturer and distributor of functional sportswear, announces development of a new model of face mask to be distributed under the UYN – Unleash Your Nature brand. The UYN Community Mask is made entirely at the company’s headquarters in Asola, in the province of Mantua, which has rapidly reorganised to guarantee a productive capacity of 10 thousand masks a day.

Ergonomic 3D design

Drawing on the company’s long experience with high-tech fabrics and studies conducted in the AREAS research and development lab, Trerè Innovation has come up with a light, ergonomic face mask that adapts perfectly to the shape of the face to ensure greater efficacy. The fabric is worked in three dimensions, thicker over the nose and mouth to create a barrier that slows dispersion of the saliva droplets that are expelled when we cough, sneeze or speak while permitting easy breathing.

Texlyte Nano: the ultralight fibre preferred by champion skiers

The UYN Community Mask is made out of Texlyte Nano, a high-tech fibre used in the manufacture of functional base layers worn by the champion skiers of the national teams of Italy, Germany, Austria, France, Norway and four other countries. The Oekotex Standard 100 and Bluesign certified material will not cause allergies and is especially recommended for use in products requiring high standards of hygiene. Texlyte Nano is 50% lighter than cotton and 34% lighter than polyester, and is moisture-repellent, thermo-regulating, highly resistant and 100% recyclable, making it one of the most eco-friendly synthetic fibres on the market.

Four sizes, for adults and children

The result is a face mask recommended for use during sporting activity and everyday life in the community. It is not a disposable product, but can be washed at 60° and used again and again, without altering its properties. The refined design, availability of plenty of different sizes for children and adults (four sizes, from XS to L) and different colours (four colours for sizes XS and S, seven for M and L) allow you to feel at ease, so the mask doesn’t feel like a foreign body.

The most altruistic thing you can do

The Community Mask is not a medical device. Wearing it is not a replacement for following the rules of hygiene and social distancing recommended by the authorities. Wearing the mask does not protect the wearer against contagion, but (by decreasing the range of action of the droplets and mucous particles that can carry the virus) is an altruistic act to protect the people around us. It’s the best thing we can do to restore confidence in interpersonal relationships!

In the words of CEO Marco Redini

“At this time of emergency, Trerè Innovation is doing its part for the good of the community,” says CEO Marco Redini. “In only a few days, we adapted our highly flexible organisation in response to the situation and put our know-how to work to develop a high quality face mask. We will increasingly be wearing face masks as we go about our everyday lives: at work, in the supermarket, at the gym, during group sporting events. This is why UYN wanted to make a Community Mask that is comfortable, lightweight, sustainable and attractive to look at. At a time like this it’s important to have a choice of colours, because colours have the power to affect our state of mind: blue has a calming effect, green expresses harmony and hope, and orange promotes optimism. UYN masks are designed for both children and adults, and we can also supply customised masks for companies and businesses”.

COVID-19: important information

COVID-19: important information

Trerè Innovation, as all Italian companies, has implemented the Prime Minister Decree of 22nd March 2020 related to the suspension of production and commercial activities until 3rd April 2020.

After the measures already implemented in the past weeks, we are now asked for an additional act of responsibility to protect the health of our employees and to combat the spread of the infection.

While following the provisions of the authorities, we want to guarantee that Trerè Innovation, thanks to its solid internal organization and collective effort, will be able to cope with the commitments made with its customers – as has always happened in its long history.

Working methods have been promptly reorganized to allow employees to continue their activities at home, where possible. As a result, the Customer Service remains active to give our partners full support. The usual communication channels remain active too. Through them we will keep you constantly updated on the evolution of the situation.

Finally, we guarantee that this difficult moment will not change the spirit of our company. Our desire to innovate and offer revolutionary products will not end. More than ever, we do not give up on the present situation, but we look to the future with confidence, aware that soon we will start again with even greater enthusiasm.

Trerè’s excellence in global design recognised again: UYN wins two iF Awards

Trerè’s excellence in global design recognised again: UYN wins two iF Awards

We are proud to announce that Trerè Innovation has been awarded two iF Design Awards, one for the UYN Alpha Biking Twinjet cycling bibs and the other for the UYN Soccer Socks. The iF Design Award has been the undisputed judge of innovation and excellence in the field of design for 67 years. Bearing the logo isn’t just about winning one of the world’s most prestigious awards; it’s also about being part of an elite set of companies that are making an impact on people’s lives and improving experiences with revolutionary services.

The iF International Forum Design GmbH gives out the Award on a yearly basis. Headquartered in Hannover, Germany, it’s the world’s oldest independent body in the field of design. In total, 7,298 candidates from 56 countries were submitted to the panel of 78 experts and among the winners chosen for the sport products category were two UYN products. Trerè also received significant recognition for our work in 2019, with the innovative Membrain115 material, used to make the Rossignol Ski Jacket.

Alpha Biking Bibs with Twinjet ventilation technology

The Alpha Biking bibs with Twinjet chamois have Trerè’s patented ventilation system built into them. Employing the same principle on which a twin-engine jet functions (taking in air at the front and expelling it at the back), the Twinjet chamois allows air in through a special opening at the front. A system of micro-conductors in the central section then allows the air to circulate and generates a cooling effect, while moisture is wicked through two openings at the back of the shorts. The result is a net reduction in excess sweat and so less irritation in sensitive areas that come into contact with the saddle.

Soccer socks with shin guard housing

With over half a century of professional experience, Trerè Innovation tops the field when it comes to technical sock production and distribution. The latest release comes in the form of socks for football, which have shin guard housing built into their structure. The housing holds the shin guards in the correct position throughout a match or training session, without the need for often ineffective tricks using tape or bands. Their ergonomic design, the silicone inserts on the insole and the shock absorption system ensure excellent comfort, stability and control for footballers.

iF Design Award winners to be showcased in Berlin from 2 to 10 May

The Alpha Biking bibs and soccer socks will be shown, alongside the other successful candidates, at the iF Design exhibition in Berlin, one of Europe’s most important design capitals. The exhibition is scheduled to take place from 2 to 10 May in the legendary Cafe Moskau, an architectural and historical symbol of the city.

You can find information about the winning products on the iF Design Award website.

Trerè Innovation technology meets the smart alpine style of Luis Trenker in an original collaborative project. This project – entirely “Made in Italy” – between our Asola-based company and the Luis Trenker brand from Alto Adige has brought about the “UYN for Luis Trenker” shoe, officially previewed at Pitti Uomo 97.

Trerè Innovation’s “Committed to a Greener World” project wins the “Social Ethics” Award

Trerè Innovation’s “Committed to a Greener World” project wins the “Social Ethics” Award

This leading Italian sportswear company’s commitment to helping the environment and sustainability won us the prestigious Plana Cultural Association prize in Milan

 “Committed to a Greener World”, one that’s better and more sustainable for those living here now and for future generations. These values have always been the inspiration behind company culture at Trerè Innovation, the leading global Italian group that produces functional and highly technical kit under the brand UYN – Unleash Your Nature, and are translated into concrete environmental protection and social awareness projects. It’s this continuous, all-round effort that has received the prestigious “Etica nel Sociale” Award for Corporate Ethics from the Plana Cultural Association, supported by the Milan municipality, the Metropolitan City of Milan, ADI (Italian Industrial Design Association) and the Symbola Foundation. The “Etico Ethical Award” Prize-giving ceremony took place on Thursday 21 November at Milan’s Palazzo Reale.

A global voice for ethical values

The purpose of the awards is to recognise the merits of those who work to benefit humankind by pushing ethical practice in every area of their business. The board of experts and authorities decided to award Trerè Innovation on account of the following:

The utmost attention the company devotes to people’s needs is central to its manufacturing. The highly technical materials, each one designed and tested for its specific intended use, are how the company achieves its goal of offering the user or wearer maximum comfort. With a team specialised in implementing increasingly sustainable measures and the slogan ‘Committed to a greener world’, Trerè Innovation has become a global voice for ethical values, continuous research into innovation and the pride of bearing the Made in Italy merchandising mark.

Committed to a Greener World: on a mission to save the environment 

For over 30 years, Trerè Innovation has managed to stand out in its field on account of the innovation and research we do into sportswear. From initial ideas to the final product, the goal is to create revolutionary items, that can improve performance and comfort during sports, but that also have a reduced impact on the environment thanks to the use of natural materials and cutting-edge manufacturing methods. That’s why, in 2016, Trerè Innovation became one of the first companies in Europe to obtain the important SteP (Sustainable Textile Production) by Oeko-Tex® certification, the most renowned guarantee of fully sustainable textile manufacturing processes. But Trerè Innovation wanted to go further than just meeting international standards – even the strictest ones – and so launched the “Committed to a Greener World” project. A team working under an environmental engineer identified the most pressing emergencies threatening the future of our planet: the dispersion of microplastics into water, the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, the production of waste. The team then monitored Trerè Innovation’s contribution to resolving these issues.


Environmental performance 

At our headquarters in Asola, in Italy’s Mantua province, we have special filters that can trap up to 425,000 microplastic fibres every day. This stops those fibres, released during manufacturing processes, from being dispersed into water and so from posing a threat to the marine ecosystem and to human health. Over a year, that adds up to 100 million plastic fragments in our oceans, the equivalent of a thread 400 km in length. We’re also currently developing a special treatment for textile products that will be able to reduce the release of microplastic fibres during garment washing by 20%.

Since 2019, 100% of the energy that we consume at our manufacturing centre in Asola comes from renewable resources. This has allowed us to even further reduce our CO2 emissions – a major cause of global warming. We estimate a reduction of 410 tonnes of CO2 in 2019, that’s equal to a car travelling around the world 66 times. Initiatives for reusing waste materials have led to a total annual recycling rate of 110 tonnes of waste material (from paper and wood to plastic and textile fibres), thus favouring a circular economy.

Not just a promise or mission: the most important promise, the most important mission.
