A Revolution in Mountain Apparel

Maison des artistes

Thursday 16 June 2022 – 3pm

In the mid-1980s, a young American company launched the first breathable membrane. In a few years, Gore-Tex became a common name in mountaineering, in France thanks to the brand Millet. This revolution in textiles continues today with constant new innovations. How has mountaineering itself been changed by these upheavals? What are the current technological challenges?

In partnership with Millet & Gore-Tex
