Wood & Waste – Jack Wolfskin

Meet Jack Wolfskin’s terra rise 3l Jacket

 

Jack Wolfskin and TENCEl™ create World’s first Jacket that Bonds all-natural outer fabric with Waterproof Breathable Membrane Made from Reused/Recycled Materials

The vision for a more sustainable outdoor apparel manufacturing industry receives a boost this season with the introduction of Jack Wolfskin’s Terra Rise 3-layer jacket. The waterproof breathable shell, available (March 2022), is the first to feature TENCEL’s Lyocell fabrics made with fibres derived from sustainably farmed wood, bonded with Jack Wolfskin’s proprietary Texapore Ecosphere membrane made with reused/ recycled pre-consumer and post-consumer waste.

sustainability has been an integral part of Jack Wolfskin’s culture and strategy since the company was founded in 1981. The German- based performance apparel, footwear and equipment manufacturer has embraced sustainable dying processes and the use of natural fibres such as organic cotton and hemp in its products for decal- des. The expansion of the brand’s partnership with TENCEL™ with the marriage of natural and recycled materials demonstrates an opportunity for the apparel industry to vastly improve its sustainability practices.

“The membrane of the Terra Rise is garbage, literally,” said Daniele Grasso, Vice President Product & apparel for Jack Wolfskin. “By working with our partners at TENCEL™, we successfully combined a natural technical outer fabric with a recycled high-performance membrane. it’s a win for the environment and for anyone who wants to look incredible while operating in wet and windy weather.”

The Terra Rise 3L, available in a contemporary men’s hip-length and longer women’s thigh-length design, delivers complete weather protection and functional features, including an attached hood, reflective elements for visibility, hand pockets and wide cuff adjustments. over time, the jacket takes on a look of its own as it patinas through wear and weather exposure, adding to the individual appeal without losing performance attributes.
