#TIDE LINEN STRAP MADE FROM OCEAN-BOUND PLASTIC

We teamed up with the Basel-based company tide ocean SA, also known as #tide or #tide ocean material®. #tide collects plastic trash polluting the ocean and coastlines and, in partnership with the Swiss University of Applied Sciences and the Institute for Materials Technology and Plastics Processing (IWK OST), upcycles it into a premium granular material made of 100% ocean-bound plastic. During this process, no chemicals or virgin plastic is added. This second-life raw material is then used to create other products, such as the yarn that is woven together in our ivory coloured linen fabric strap. The signature NORQAIN stitches on the strap and the name of the material – “Nortide” – signify a long-term NORQAIN-#tide collaboration.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE PLAYERS ASSOCIATION

As part of this partnership, NORQAIN had a presence in the NHLPA All-Star Lounge, interacting with all 44 all-stars. And over the course of the partnership, several NHLPA players will participate in exclusive NORQAIN initiatives, and NORQAIN will also have a presence at joint events during the hockey season and in the off-season. The commitment of NORQAIN Board member Mark Streit, 2017 Stanley Cup winner and Swiss hockey legend, and Roman Josi, three-time NHL All-Star player, «Norris Trophy» winner and captain of the Nashville Predators has been a key factor in NORQAIN’s entry into ice hockey and in the establishment of this important alliance with the NHLPA.
