What is Re:Down?

 This material is the sustainable choice for mid-winter puff layers. The insulation is 100% recycled, composed of 80% Recycled Down and 20% Recycled Feathers. Re:Down is featured in our Men’s and Women’s ROOT Down Jacket.

Why Re:Down?

Down materials are sourced through bird feathers due to their excellent insulating properties. Virgin down relies on healthy bird stock; however the uncertainty of bird flu outbreaks has led certain manufacturers to adopt unethical practices towards birds ranging from force feeding, to live plucking and cruel slaughter conditions.
Re:Down seeks to solve this issue by repurposing post-consumer down and feathers, removing the need for new animal input while maintaining the incredible thermal properties of regular down.

Looking Forward

 Re:Down embodies the circular business model FW strives to achieve, repurposing material rather than starting from scratch, reducing unnecessary waste going to landfill and maintaining premium quality standards.
