With regards to production – we do select materials with sustainability in mind, but only if they meet our strict criteria for durability. We would like to argue that something that is labeled sustainable but breaks easily and has to be replaced often, does not represent an optimal solution for sustainability. It is important to note that we would never use materials with known toxic or environmentally harmful components just to make our jackets last forever. We are continuously learning about new developments and technologies concerning sustainable production.
Here are some of the examples of sustainable initiatives/suppliers for our production of Scandinavian Edition jackets:
– Our outer fabric is «BLUESIGN approved». BLUESIGN is a system that provides safer and more sustainable environments for people to work in and everyone to live in.
– We use «EcoDown» by Thermore in many of our jackets, which come from post-consumer plastic bottles.
– If we use real down, we use RDS Certified Down. The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to any unnecessary harm.
