Our vegan jackets are really something special. They keep you comfy and warm with an insulation that is completely animal-free and not made of pure synthetic materials either. The animal materials are replaced by the natural kapok material! Kapok has both outstanding ethical and technical attributes.
Kapok, also known as plant down, is the silky soft and extremely light hollow fiber of the kapok tree. Kapok is similar to down and thus isolates excellently. Furthermore, kapok is water-repellent due to its natural wax film and dries quickly. The fiber repels moths and mites and is antimicrobial and hypoallergenic.
Under sustainability aspects kapok scores too! The kapok trees are wild growing and flourish without any artificial irrigation or fertilization. The kapok fruit is no food and as the trees can naturally grow pretty much everywhere, they don't need farmland. The fruit capsules are handpicked by local farmers. The kapok fiber is biodegradable and naturally vegan.
Adding recycled polyester keeps the kapok filling in shape, even after machine washing the jacket at 30 degrees.
The outstandig 'inner values' of our jackets are protected by durable and tear-proof nylon, that is recycled from old fishing nets.
Innovative natural and recycled materials combined with our unique design and style result in a beautiful, high-quality collection of kapok jackets: enjoy! The winter can come!
