Klättermusen launches jackets made from beans

Klättermusen is launching a range of down products created with plant-based fabrics. This is part of the company’s aim to be the first on the market with more sustainable outdoor innovations. The new products feature an outer layer made from 60% castor bean oil and a 100% traceable bluesign® approved down on the inside.

“Seeking out more sustainable alternatives and develop new materials together with our fabric suppliers is part of our philosophy when we create new products. Traditio­nal nylon is based on 100% crude oil but we have replaced 60% of it in these gar­ments” says Isabelle Malm, designer at Klättermusen.

The new products are the Bore 2.0 Jacket, Atle 2.0 Jacket, Atle Vest, Liv 2.0 Down Sweater and Heidrun 2.0 Down Shorts. They are created with non-penetrating seams and high-loft down for maximum warmth and comfort in cold weather con­ditions.
