About the Company

Since their founding in 1972, Thermore has been a leader and innovator in thermal insulation. The company manufactures a range of down alternative fibers for the outerwear market. The Ecodown® product line, made exclusively from post-consumer PET water bottles, was launched in 2018.

Material

Ecodown® is a synthetic down alternative made exclusively from post-consumer plastic.

Technology

Used PET bottles are repurposed following standard recycling procedures. The PET flakes are melted and spun into new fibers. These fibers are then used to produce Ecodown insulation for outerwear.

Applications

Insulation and filling for outwear
