Our new generation yarn deserves new generation style. This contemporary hoodie combines both with its unique blend of upcycled cotton, recycled polyester and Tencel, crafted into a subtly cropped lose shape body and long raglan sleeves. Exposed raw edge seams and drawstrings finished with gunmetal ends serve to cement its personality.
FEATURES • Large cosy hood • Wide cuffs • Raw-edge detail at hem, neck and raglans • Cotton drawstrings finished with gunmetal aglets • Soft brushed inside • Made from an open-knit marl fabric with a brushed backside and soft handfeel • Fabric composition: 50% recycled polyester/25% recycled cotton/25% lyocell • Fabric construction: American fleece loopback • Low environmental impact: recycled polyester requires 70% less energy to make than polyester and the process is largely mechanical. Reusing plastic bottles ensures that the plastic already around in this world gets recycled rather than put into landfill or the oceans. Recycled cotton requires no fertilisers, pesticides, insecticides or water. Lyocell is made from wood pulp in a closed-loop system reusing water and chemicals.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER Environmentally friendly and ethical fashion is often perceived as beige, hemp, boring, expensive and ‘too artisan’. Cue the arrival of VILDNIS – a sustainable women’s fashion brand that says out with the beige and in with the bold. Translated as ‘wilderness’ from Danish, this London-based, Scandinavian-inspired brand is determined to show that fashion can be kind to the environment and pack serious personality. Its collections are contemporary, edgy, accessible and audacious. Its only point of difference from conventional fashion? VILDNIS is easy on the eyes and your conscience. VILDNIS is founded by Danish-born Ulla Vitting Richards, whose 15 years of experience in the fashion industry exposed her to unethical supply chain and environmental practices that she wanted to set right, without compromising on style.
