Avan bio-fleece jacket "Nemphis"
<p>The first eco-friendly fleece that can be washed with a good green conscience!<br><br>We at namuk consider sustainability not only a duty, but an obligation; not a trend, but a new tradition. <br><br>With the Avan fleece jacket, we’re taking a determined leap toward the future. The super comfortable jacket, which can be worn comfortably under a water-repellent layer, is made of BIO Primaloft fleece - an absolute first. <br><br>The material is made of 100% PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) synthetic fibers and ultimately biodegrades back to its natural elements – not, of course, before keeping a couple generations of kids warm while playing hide-and-seek, building huts and flying kites – not to mention withstanding dozens of wash cycles without contributing to microplastic pollution like most fleece gear!
We not only build in zipper protection on the outside, but also the inside. Little chins getting rubbed raw are now finally a thing of the past.
PrimaLoft® Bio™ is the first-ever synthetic insulation and fabric made from 100% recycled, biodegradable* fibers.
These fibers break down when exposed to the right environments, such as oceans or landfills. They are optimized to be more attractive to the naturally-occurring microbes found in these environments – returning the insulation and fabric to natural elements – such as gases.
What’s Left? The biodegradation* process leaves behind water, methane, CO2 and biomass.
*93.8% biodegradation in 646 days under ASTM D5511 conditions (accelerated landfill environment); 74.3% biodegradation in 889 days under ASTM D6691 conditions (accelerated marine/ocean environment). The stated rate and extent of degradation do not mean that the product will continue to degrade.
Just because some material is left over after production doesn’t mean it’s less valuable. That’s why for this product, we made use of the high-quality scraps – so-called “upcycling.” So we can protect the environment and help reduce mountains of waste.
We only use zippers made by market leader YKK. That lets us guarantee the best quality and optimal performance. And it’s easy-peasy to open the zipper, even in frosty temperatures.
