Light and warm hooded fleece jacket for men. Features an innovative fabric construction that prevent microfiber shedding and is made in recycled and recyclable fibers.
Mono Air Houdi is a world innovation that takes us a big step closer to a world without waste. The light and stretchy fabric is designed to prevent microfiber shedding. Endlessly long filament fibers are captured in little pockets of air with an outer fabric on both sides. The result is a soft and warm fabric that shed up to five times less microfibers compared to regular top quality fleece. It doesn’t only prevent plastic waste. It’s actually made from recycled polyester and thanks to the mono(single) material it is fully recyclable. Mono Air Houdi is designed to last for ages and when it eventually wears out, the material can become new resources instead of textile waste.
The US made fabric from Polartec® called Power Air Light is stretchy, breathable and has a great warmth-to-weight ratio. It works perfectly to layer underneath a shell jacket or to wear as it is as a light outer layer. Perfect for skiing, climbing, hiking or any other outdoor adventure. The durable surface and high quality production will last for many years of hard use. The garment is designed in an athletic fit, with a snug hood and extended sleeves with thumb loops for added comfort.
If you are looking for a light, warm and versatile fleece jacket and at the same time contribute to a world without waste, there is no better choice than Mono Air Houdi. It’s the perfect example of a product where innovation drives both performance and sustainability forward.
Please don’t throw away this garment when it’s worn out. Mono Air Houdi is made from recycled and recyclable fibers. The raw materials are valuable and can be used again. Bring it back to a Houdini shop or one of our retailers that has a Houdini recycling unit.
FABRICS AND TECHNOLOGY
Main Fabric: Polartec® Power Air Light
A new light fabric construction where fibers that trap warm air is encapsulated in small pockets. This creates a wonderfully warm and breathable fleece jacket that shed a fraction of the microplastic compared to a normal fleece. Light, durable and warming.
When washing clothes made of synthetic fabrics, the use of a washing bag becomes even more important: It prevents microplastics from entering into rivers and oceans.
This product is fully circular, meaning that it's made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
At least 50% of the fibers in this garment come from recycled sources, either recycled clothes or other sources like PET bottles. We mainly use recycled polyester, which has many benefits. It reduces both CO2 emissions and water use compared to virgin polyester. How much depends on the type of recycling. One of our suppliers show 32% less CO2 emissions and 94% less water use for mechanically recycled polyester. In addition to the impact in production, the major shift is using "waste" as raw material instead of crude oil.
The fabric in this garment is fully recyclable. Instead of becoming waste, the raw material can be used for new products. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.
This product is Bluesign® certified, meaning that the production is vetted by a third party to eliminate any harmful chemicals or substances right from the beginning of the production process. This benefits both people, animals and our entire planet.
