The year started on a high at ISPO 2020 when Steve and I were invited out to Munich after being selected by the judges at ISPO Brandnew (one of the biggest, most respected competitions in the sports industry) as one of the top 50 newcomers!

It was none other than our Recycled Parka that caught the judges eye and attracted the attention of buyers from around the world!
