Garment Spotlight – natureVsfuture

by

naturevsfutureFor most people, the name Polartec conjures up images of warm fleece jackets from Patagonia, The North Face, Mountain Hardwear and other major outdoor clothing brands.

Brooklyn fashion designer Nina Vallenti had other ideas for Polartec when she launched her company, naturevsfuture six years ago: high fashion that is functional and sustainable.

Case in point: the naturevsfuture Fleece Zip Up Jacket.

As the Tastemaker Diaries points out, the jacket is, “made from recycled Polartec® fleece, a combination of yarn crafted from PCP post-consumer plastic (soda bottles) and PIR post-industrial materials (scraps of fabric and yarn leftovers). This jacket is perfect for art openings, job interviews, and getting wined and dined by someone who’s really worth it.”

Check out the full line of naturevsfuture garments. They’ve got a really beautiful little black dress made from recycled Polartec fabric, some cool sweaters and yoga tops too.
