Down that grows on trees.
PrimaLoft®Silver Insulation Natural Blend is an innovative hybrid insulation made from plant fibers – its development was initiated by VAUDE’s search for bio-based alternatives with natural functional properties. The kapok tree provided the answers we were looking for. These trees prosper without the use of fertilizers or pesticides and don’t need extra irrigation to grow. The naturally light, silky fibers sourced from the seed pods of the kapok tree provide inherent lightweight warmth and moisture management. Combined with polyester, the material dries fast and is easy to maintain; as an insulating fill it retains its functional qualities in long-lasting products. PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Natural Blend is made of 30 % kapok and 70 % PrimaLoft® ultra fine fibers of which two thirds come from post-consumer recycled PET bottles to conserve fossil resources.
