How to Craft Sustainable Jackets and Ethical Coats

When it comes to winter fashion, finding the perfect jacket that not only keeps you warm but also aligns with your values can be a challenge. Enter sustainable jackets - the answer to your fashion conundrum. Let’s explore the world of sustainable jackets and ethical coats, their ethical production processes, and the variety of eco-friendly fashion materials used to create them. Whether you're in search of sustainable men's jackets or sustainable women's jackets, we've got you covered. It’s time to zip up or button up, before the next storm rolls in off the open sea.

“Let’s explore the world of sustainable jackets and ethical coats.” 

The Importance of Sustainability for Jacket Lovers

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness regarding the environmental impact of the fashion industry. From excessive water consumption to the release of toxic chemicals, traditional fashion practices have taken a toll on our planet. This realisation has led to an increased demand for sustainable and eco-friendly clothing alternatives, including sustainable jackets.

Ethical Production: A Key Criterion

One of the primary considerations when determining the sustainability of a jacket is the production process. Ethical fashion production involves fair labour practices, ensuring that workers are treated fairly and provided safe working conditions. Brands like TWOTHIRDS have taken a stand by producing our garments in Portugal and Spain under strict labour standards, guaranteeing that our sustainable jackets are ethically made. There’s even the added benefit that our European suppliers spend many days of the year operating off solely clean renewable energy!

“We are doubling down on our efforts to keep production local in Portugal and Spain, where waves, wind and the beating sun have the power to fuel a cleaner future.” 

Animal Welfare: Animal-Friendly Jackets

For those who are particularly conscious of animal welfare issues, the presence of animal-based products in jackets can be a concern. Thankfully, many sustainable jackets, including the ones offered by TWOTHIRDS, are made to the highest animal care standards. 

Many of our eco-friendly jackets are designed with recycled polyester padding, providing the same level of warmth and comfort as down feathers, without compromising animal welfare. We also are also committed to using only mulesing-free virgin wool or high-quality recycled wool.

Recycled Materials: A Step Towards True Circularity

Sustainable jackets are all about minimising waste and utilising recycled materials or even deadstock whenever possible. Brands like TWOTHIRDS go the extra mile to ensure that our eco-friendly jackets are designed with a focus on the environment. By using recycled materials, such as recycled polyester, these jackets significantly reduce the demand for virgin resources and contribute to a circular economy.

Water-Repellent Finishes: Eco-Friendly Protection

When it comes to sustainability, even the smallest details matter. Take, for instance, the water-repellent finishes used in TWOTHIRDS sustainable jackets. Instead of traditional finishes that may contain harmful chemicals, TWOTHIRDS opts for Teflon EcoElite™, a renewably sourced, plant-based, water-repellent finish. This not only provides excellent protection against the elements but also ensures that our environment remains unharmed and chemical-free.

Sherpa Linings: Cosy and Sustainable

The linings of sustainable jackets also play a significant role in their overall eco-friendliness. TWOTHIRDS leads the way by incorporating recycled polyester sherpa linings into many of our jackets. By using recycled materials, these linings reduce the reliance on new resources while maintaining the cosy and warm feel that we all love from our winter jackets. Recycled sherpa fleece doesn’t just appear on our sustainable coat linings – our eco-friendly fleece jackets are also a huge hit amongst our ocean community.

Nickel-Free Zippers, Poppers and Rivets

There’s nothing more irritating than your favourite ethical jacket refusing to close or one of its poppers falling off, but what’s even worse is being made aware that those same zippers, poppers and rivets feature a material that’s as damaging as nickel. When choosing your next sustainable jacket or eco-friendly coat you should be sure to check that all its metallic elements are free of nickel. This will avoid possible skin irritation and other unwanted side effects. Of course, all zippers, poppers and rivets in our TWOTHIRDS eco jacket range feature 0% nickel, and that’s a promise! 

Perfect Pairing: What to Wear Under a Sustainable Winter Coat

Finding the right eco clothing to wear under your sustainable winter coat can be a real dilemma. The key is to consider the weather and choose layers accordingly. In icy climates, pairing your mid-weight sustainable winter coat with a thick ethical knit is a great option. However, in more temperate regions like right here in Barcelona, you can even get away with wearing just an eco-friendly shirt under your sustainable jacket.
