Luxepad - Ball Version, the upcycled down alternative
Pursuing a fully sustainable lifestyle is not always easy and more eco friendly clothing options than those proposed by the fast fashion industry are becoming more necessary than ever.
This can be achieved with a production cycle based on a Circular Economy model and Upcycling is a big step forward in this direction.
We recovered scraps of camelhair and silk faux fur that are Upcyled from the production of coats in order to create a very warm insulation. This filling is capable of maintaining equal insulating properties as virgin fibers without requiring additional consumption.
Luxepad - Ball Version is created in three steps:
- firstly, recovered materials are gathered and sorted in Northern Italy;
- secondly, they are transformed through a mechanic process into very fine fibres;
- lastly, the fibres are blended with recycled polyester, creating a high performing insulating mix, ready to be processed to create a round ball.
This process, whose patent was filed, allowed us to create a highly resilient product, which features extraordinary resilience and consistent insulating capacity.
Made through a process that is less impactful in terms of energy consumption, waste production, water usage and CO emissions, Paddyluxe - Balls Version is a new frontier for ecologically responsible fashion, giving new purpose to otherwise discarded precious materials.
