The Story

ZANIER is the first climate neutral glove brand since 2019 and is pushing sustainable materials in its collections. BLEED CLOTHING is an authentic brand for sustainable lifestyle in Germany since 2008. The cooperation Bleed X Zanier pools the bleed knowledge about ecological, fair materials without animal suffering with the expertise of the Austrian glove specialist since 1969. Connecting link was Climate Partner, which certifies both companies climate neutral. Vegan, climate-neutral, recycled and recyclable – an outdoor glove that is also a sustainability statement.

The Bleed X Zanier gloves, with a graphic, water-based print on the upper hand, are ideal for both urban areas and outdoor activities and can be used all-year-round. All materials are vegan and highly functional, and the synthetic materials used are also bluesign® and OEKOTEX®-certified. The SYMPATEX® shell is PTFE and PFC-free, incredibly breathable, waterproof and windproof. The proven Polartec® fleece lining, made from recycled PES, is durable, tough and incredibly popular thanks to its outstanding insulating properties.

A tough cork material, laser printed with the slogan “ACT NOW”, has been added to reinforce the palm of the glove. After the lifecycle, the product is taken back by Zanier, the loop is closed due the help of the Sympatex wear-to-wear system.
