Première Vision Innovation Prize 2010 For Schoeller Textil AG — Fabric With EnergearTM Technology Wins Major Textile Prize

Paris — September 16,  2010 — The second annual PV Awards were presented in Paris. From 113
nominees, the international jury found a winner for each of five categories. Schoeller Textil AG
won the “Innovation Prize 2010” with the new technology called energear TM. The fabric presented is
from the schoeller®-shape group and was recognized as “the most innovative, the most intelligent,
the most technological and creative”. 


Apparent contradictions between tradition and technology merge in this authentic wool
quality from Schoeller Textil AG. The winner of the Innovation Prize 2010 combines refined elegance
with exceptional performance underscoring the concept of wellness in the textile with energearTM.
The schoeller®-shape fabric features a transversely elastic bonded wool/polyester blend quality
interior and exterior in an exciting interplay. The pleasant, smooth jersey inside is tone on tone
with the soft outside. Maximum protection against wind and weather, exceptional breathability and
comfort with elasticity further distinguishes this award-winning fabric. It provides protection and
elegance in urban, travel or outdoor wear and has an extra dose of “well-being” with the new
energearTM technology.

energearTM is the entirely new fabric generation from Schoeller Textil AG, which takes
nature as its role model. With energearTM, a special titanium and mineral matrix integrated into
the fabric ensures that the body’s Far Infrared Rays (FIRs) are reflected back to the wearer by the
textile. The reflection of the FIRs promotes blood circulation and the increase of oxygen levels in
the blood. This additional energy has a number of positive effects on the body, for example,
performance enhancement and prevention of premature fatigue, as well as improved regeneration. In
addition, shorter warm-up phases are sufficient for physical activity and overall there is an
increase in concentration and wellbeing. Of course, other fabric

features such as breathability, weather protection and elasticity are retained.
