category Functional outerwear
The collection of children’s outerwear is built-up in layers to suit different and changing weather. Using soft merino wool, recycled polyester, Thermore® Ecodown® and high-quality stretch nylon, the garments are made for play and everyday wear during the autumn, winter and spring seasons. The separate pieces are designed in simple colour scales with comfortable and allowing fits, to function both practically and aesthetically as combined layers.
Functions & Features
Thermore® is an Italian expert in sustainable thermal insulation technology, founded in Milan in 1972. In the 1980s, Thermore® was the first to introduce a thermal insulation made from recycled PET bottles. The company’s Ecodown® is made exclusively from recycled post-consumer plastic water bottles and offers a soft, warm and durable alternative to down feathers. Depending on the application, a garment insulated with Ecodown® allows recycling of up to ten PET bottles. Thermore® padding is Bluesign and PETA approved.
material Recycled polyester
Recycled polyester is commonly made from post-consumer PET. Often found as plastic bottles, PET is processed, polymerised, spun and knitted or woven to create a wrinkle-resistant fabric that is easy to care for. The regenerated yarn holds the same properties as virgin polyester; it is strong, resilient and durable, with excellent moisture-wicking qualities, and can be recycled repeatedly.
Conventional polyester is man-made from petrochemicals. As one of the most heavily produced fabrics in the world, it requires large amounts of water, chemicals and energy to produce. Recycled polyester takes less energy to make than virgin polyester, and helps to divert plastic bottles from ending up in a landfill.
