Thermal insulation experts, Thermore Ecodown has recently announced that it has bagged certification for its thermal insulated jacket in the apparel market from Bluesign and GRS. The jacket was produced with fully recycled fibre content derived exclusively from 10 PET water bottles that would have otherwise ended up in waste.

Equally impressive is the fact that the new ‘Ecodown 100 per cent recycled thermal insulation’ does not require special quilting restrictions or fabrics and can be washed and/or dry cleaned with confidence. This high level of durability equates to exceptional, long term warmth over the life of a garment.

The Bluesign system is the solution for a sustainable textile production and all key Thermore product categories are Bluesign approved, allowing Thermore to provide its customers with almost 100 Bluesign certified items.
