With the Deterra® line we wanted to create the most technical jacket possible without using any fossil based material. The result is the Deterra® Hood Anorak, a 100 % bio-based padded jacket. The materials include castor beans, Tencel, wool, corn, cotton and corozo nuts.
Instead of plastic stoppers the hood is adjusted with a knot. Deterra® Hood Anorak is a symbol of how technical a garment can be today if it should be fully bio-based. We can of course make lighter, more durable, more water resistant and cheaper jackets, but then they won’t be 100 % bio-based.
We will use this jacket as a platform to talk about new materials and solutions as part of our quest to make technical clothes that are sustainable both for us users and the planet.
The Deterra® Hood Anorak was awarded with ISPO AWARD ECO ACHIEVEMENT APPAREL 2017/18.
Jury statement: "Tierra uses only fossil free materials, avoiding components contamination. The anorak‘s timeless look has the potential to have a long lifetime with the consumer."
