We do all we can as a start up company to approach all of our manufacturing and distribution with sustainability in mind.
Our garments are made in Italy to the highest standards by skilled craftsmen and women in a fantastic working environment.
Almost all technical fabrics are chemically treated to some degree and will inevitably cause damage to the environment. However, we consider our long-term impact on the environment and use the highest quality fabrics to ensure that our garments are made to last.
At ThruDark we have selected to utilise down because it’s identified as the world’s best natural insulator. Natural down provides an individual with approximately three times the warmth per ounce compared to synthetic insulators. Every ounce of down has approximately two million fluffy filaments that interlock and overlap to create insulating pockets of air, which aids in keeping you warm when you most need it.
There are advantages and disadvantages associated to both real and synthetic down in a practical application scenario. We utilise both real and synthetic down at ThruDark and consider the conditions our garments have been developed to withstand. Information on the use of real and synthetic down related to specific garments can be found on individual product pages.
All of the down selected for use in our products is responsibly sourced from Europe and conforms to strict EU responsible down regulation guidelines.
