Resistance to wear and abrasion test: for example, we check that our fleeces do not pill using tests conducted in laboratories. Colour retention test: the colour fastness is verified to ensure that the colours do not bleed when coming into contact with saliva. Ageing test: repeated washing should not affect the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance.
The fabric offers the best protection from the sun: long sleeves, trousers and hats with wide edges. Attention, simply wearing a t-shirt is not adequate protection: the thickness of the fabric, the density of the knit and even the colour may affect the amount of filtered UV rays. the label UPF 40+/ 50+ guarantees compliance with European standards. The indication UPF 40+ means that 97.5% of rays are blocked, 50+ that over 98% of rays are blocked.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
Our young teams of testers based at the foot of the Mont Blanc and our Research and Development laboratory, which is responsible for selecting the best components.
