We’re proud to present our collaboration with the Spanish sustainable brand EcoAlf. Each square meter of fabric is produced by 70 PET plastic bottles gathered from the ocean and converts into each jacket consisting of approximately 120 plastic bottles.
EcoAlf sources the bottles by collaborating with more than 3000 fishermen at over 50 ports, leading to 550 fishing vessels. They spent more than two years developing a technology that transform the plastic from the ocean into high quality yarn. This sourcing process allows uphold a truly sustainable production in the way that it contributes to cleaning the oceans. We’re proud to join in on this project with this collaborative jacket.

A key concern for us was to make it a piece that can be worn across seasons thereby, reducing the need for owning multiple jackets that serve the similar needs. Therefore, we designed the jacket with zip-off sleeves so that it may be worn as a down vest, liner or a regular jacket, making it an optimal cross season wardrobe stable.
