Puma Keeps National Team Kit Train Rolling With Five New Unveilings – SportsLogos.Net News

Must read


After Nike and Adidas unveiled a slew of new national soccer team kits earlier in March, Puma is keeping the train rolling along with five new kits of their own.

Puma launched the new home and away kits on Friday, March 28, with four out of the five teams having qualified for Euro 2024 this summer in Germany. Each kit features “bespoke designs that celebrate the rich heritage of each nation,” according to the press release.

While authentic versions of the kits will be made with Puma’s Ultraweave technology, the company heavily emphasized their RE:FIBRE recycling technology in the replica versions.

The RE:FIBRE process focuses on textile waste as the primary source of material to create new textiles. The recycled material can be used for recycling again and again without losing quality – making RE:FIBRE a more long-term solution for recycling polyester textile waste.

Through the RE:FIBRE program, PUMA is keen to address the challenge of textile waste via a long-term solution for recycling. The technology also looks to diversify the fashion industry’s main source of recycled polyester in garments from being less reliant on clear plastic bottles.

The RE:FIBRE process uses any polyester material – from factory offcuts, faulty goods to pre-loved clothes which allows new garments to be recycled from any color textile to any color desired.
