Highlights of textile engineering

With the SHINE collection, Rökona delivers real highlights among technical textiles.

Innovative and sustainable lustre textiles that impress with their elegant sheen and high-quality metallic look – without any metallic components. This means they are 100% pure and recyclable.

The textiles are part of our Re:Space portfolio, which has won several awards for its innovative and sustainable approach, including the German Design Award and the German Innovation Award.

Black Sterling is a double-face textile with a black reverse side and perforated structure. The printable surface in a textured metallic look creates a subtle 3D effect and shimmers in a rich silver colour. Like all textiles in the SHINE collection, Black Sterling is unmixed and 100% recyclable.

Grey Sterling has a high-quality, textured metallic look with a closed chequerboard pattern. This creates a pleasant light silver lustre. The textile is unmixed and recyclable – and it can be printed.

Horizon is a real speciality among shiny textiles. Its block stripe design offers partial protection against transparency and light incidence. The wide stripes create a reflective metallic look, which is interrupted by narrower semi-transparent dark stripes. The surface is printable and the textile is fully recyclable as a single-origin material.

Moon impresses with its even, elegant silver lustre. As with high-quality metal, iridescent reflections and a varied interplay of light and dark, shiny and matt surfaces are created depending on the incidence of light. When exposed to direct light, the front of the material is opaque – the reverse is black and semi-transparent. The textile is unmixed, recyclable and is characterised by its high inherent rigidity. Moon is suitable for both printing and laser cutting.

Discover Contracut – the textile for maximum safety during chainsaw operations!

Rökona’s patented cut protection, integrated into the front section of work trousers, sets standards in the field of occupational safety clothing.

Our clear recommendation to manufacturers: Incorporate Contracut in six layers! In this way, you can provide the wearer not only with the highest level of protection but also unmatched comfort and excellent breathability. By choosing the right garment manufacturing techniques and using high-quality outer and lining fabrics, it’s even possible to achieve Cut Protection Class 1 with just five layers of Contracut.

The revolutionary functionality of Contracut is truly impressive: When the saw blade comes into contact with the trousers, special threads are pulled out by the chain. These then get caught in the sprocket. This stops the chainsaw in milliseconds. The bottom layer of the Contracut fabric remains intact, ensuring the forestry worker exits the work situation unharmed.

Sustainable protection for you and the environment: Contracut is 100% polyester and is therefore recyclable and environmentally friendly.

Opt for workplace safety Made in Germany – for security, comfort, and environmental awareness in the workplace!

Environmental protection front and centre

Sustainability and the environment play a central role in our company policy. Now, in addition to ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and IATF 16949 certification, we are also certified in accordance with ISO 14001 for our integrated environmental management system.


We are setting the standard for sustainability and environmental protection in the textiles industry with these values. Our latest certification in accordance with ISO 14001 verifies that we are a reliable partner in relation to the constantly increasing expectations for sustainability in companies.

This environmental management system makes it possible for us to take a preventative approach to environmental issues and to replace or augment expensive technologies with integrated production solutions through careful planning. Our environmental management comprises the planning, control, monitoring and improvement of all operational measures for the protection of the environment and for environmentally-oriented operational and employee management. We make a direct, positive contribution to the global challenge of climate change by minimising the negative environmental effects of our textile production with reduced resources, emissions and waste. Headquartered in Tübingen, a city with a Green government, we are meeting our local responsibility for sustainability with this voluntary contribution.

Starting with 383 m²

Our new photovoltaic system – We’re taking another step toward a more sustainable economy while expanding our contribution to reducing CO2 emissions.

Our premises in Tübingen conduct full-scale production that requires electricity. A photovoltaic system went into operation there on May 10th, 2022 to facilitate our entry into generating renewable energy. The system’s peak power is 75 KWp. In comparison, a single-family house with a PV system supplying four persons generates peak power of around 6 KWp. The calculations indicate that with this new system we will eliminate approximately 40,000 kg of CO2 emissions each year. An expansion of the system is also planned in the upcoming years.
In addition to the development of our Rökona location in Tübingen, this undertaking also contributes to the development of the city of Tübingen and its planned „Lustnauer Ohren“ solar park located nearby.
“Tübingen’s city government and above all Mayor Boris Palmer absolutely want this system, given that Tübingen is aiming to be completely climate-neutral within eight years.  Measures for achieving this include having so many photovoltaic systems in Tübingen that their combined power output is 200 megawatts. Large roofs on company buildings along with land on the sides of busy roads where no buildings can be constructed anyway offer good location opportunities for these types of facilities.”…

MOON meets Xbrick®

At the ARENA 2036 research campus, our Moon article is represented amidst Design Thinking Sessions at the design factory’s space as the Xbrick® textile information flyer.

The information area of the design studio wd3 Design displays the intelligent application diversity of Xbrick®, along with our partnership-like collaborative work. The MOON article’s homogenous, shiny surface is ideal for printing, and its Trevira CS certification provides the best conditions for its use in public spaces.

The theme of sustainability welds us together. The Xbrick® concept is single-origin and recyclable, our textile surface has the same properties, and the special sheen is achieved without steaming. Both companies work toward the goal of achieving the highest possible level of sustainability for the products. Xbrick® has been awarded the Focus Open GOLD 2018 prize, while the Moon article is part of the “EFFECTIVE” collection and was equally awarded the Focus Open GOLD prize in 2021.
