We see a strong interest in sustainability not just in the Nordics, but across Europe where Wilma will also set to launch with several partners this autumn in countries such as the UK, Switzerland and France. We aim to be the leader within sustainability for our industry and the new Wilma collection is our first step on this journey, says Pärlan Fritz, Commercial Director at Fashiontekk AB.

Facts

Wilma’s new mobile phone cases are produced of 60% PBAT and 40% PLA

PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable biomass, typically from fermented plant starch such as from corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp.

PBAT (Polybutylene Adipate Terephthalate) is a biodegradable random copolymer. PBAT can be made from both fossil and bio-based sources, and is fully biodegradable (EN 13432).

Packaging is manufactured from recycled paper, minimal in size and is completely free of plastic.
