James Padded is suitable for a hike in the forest as well as a stroll in the city. The jacket is manufactured within Europe in the city of Birminghamn, UK, with water resistant BCI-Certified cotton. The water resistance is reached through the tradition of waxing the fabric. The BCI Certification ensures that in the process of producing the cotton, measures have been taken to reduce environmental impacts and to improve the livelihoods and economic development in production areas. The padding in the quilted lining is made from recycled polyester certified under the Global Recycled Standard. The recycled material is derived from polyester textile waste that is sorted, cleaned and processed into new fibres used for padding. The material in the buttons are recycled metal. We aim to make our products as sustainable as possible, detail by detail.
