NYLON & PRIMALOFT FROM UPCYCLED LEFTOVER STOCK
The Women’s Bomber is made of nylon and Primaloft, both from leftover stock from our producer in Italy.
Primaloft is a synthetic microfiber thermal insulation fabric developed by the United States Army in the 1980s. It is 100% polyester. In 2010, Primaloft was named first branded insulation manufacturer to obtain bluesign’s system partner status for environmental impact. Primaloft is machine washable in cold water and dryable on a gentle cycle.
Our upcycled nylon is water repellent and is lightweight and durable, passing the Martindale Abrasion Test with a high rating of 20,000 rubs: 2 times higher than the average padded jacket.
Polartec Power Air is a brand-new knit dual-surface construction that encapsulates air to retain warmth and reduce microfiber shedding (5x less than other premium mid-layer fabrics, preventing loose microfibers from shedding out into the environment). Polartec Power Air is designed to be highly pilling resistant. Thanks to its innovative fabric construction encasing internal yarns, by creating individual air pockets it ensures high body warmth while being super light. Recycled from PET.
