Our passion for the great outdoors goes hand in hand with a passion to protect it: Where the outdoors is at risk, we cannot turn a blind eye. Sustainability is doing business right: by avoiding future costs to restore nature; by more effective production, prolonging the product use and by considering the afterlife of products.
Cotton is rarely the basic material for innovative textiles. Nevertheless, Vaude uses the natural material in a modern weaving process for its Redmont 1L Jacket. The special feature: when wet, the fabric swells up and the densified fabric prevents moisture from penetrating to the body, even without a membrane. Only GOTS-certified biologically produced material is used. The sustainable orientation of the jacket is underlined by the use of natural dyes. In the Redmont 1L Jacket, synthetic colouring is specifically avoided in order to prevent water contamination by microfilaments. Every time a jacket is washed, colour particles are removed. If they are of natural origin, they can be biologically degraded - unlike synthetic dyes. Vaude continues to focus uncompromisingly on environmental protection.
