Swiss Waste Jacket – long, rusty
The unisex SWISS WASTE JACKET from Round Rivers is a super warm oversized winter jacket, entirely made from Swiss waste*. All raw materials are sourced and converted within a production radius of only 140km. Your new winter jacket is CO2-positive.
The polyester fabric is made of 18 PET-bottles that we sourced ourselves from the Zurich river Limmat. Thereby, we clean the environment and generate our own raw material at the same time.
The insulation layer is made of recycled down from unused duvets and pillows that we source in Switzerland. Of course, they are washed and sterilized. Recycled down have the same performance as new ones and guarantee highest wearing comfort - just without animal suffering.
LIMITED TO 200 PIECES. The reason for the limitation is that - we only sell as many outfits as we can produce from the PET-bottles we`ve collected. Each jacket is numbered consecutively.
*except of the jackets accessoires.
