Description

A blue, hooded mid-layer jacket designed as part of Project Mono Air. Swedish brand Houdini released Project Mono Air in collaboration with Polartec in October 2020. This first garment to come out of this collaboration is Houdi which is made of over 70% recycled PET and constructed from a single form of polyester. This makes it possible for the fabric to not just be recycled but be broken down to its elemental form and repurposed into new yarn. Houdini share many details about the construction of their Mono Air Houdi with the goal to enable co-creation and a circular transformation of the apparel industry. The groundbreaking Polartec Power Air Lightweight, which is produced in Cleveland, Tennessee, is a high-performance, stretchy, and highly durable, light fleece fabric constructed to prevent the shedding of microfibers without compromising on functionality. It is made from recycled and recyclable polyester, ensuring a circular lifecycle. This fabric has a great balance between breathability and wind resistance, providing a 4-season insulation garment for skiing, climbing, hiking or any other outdoor adventure. The cut and fit of the Houdi is designed to provide the ultimate balance between performance and comfort. The stretch in the fabric enables a snug fit that fits well underneath a shell jacket without feeling too tight. It has a raglan sleeve that gives the shoulders room to move. The neck and the wrists are the main contact points between the garment and your skin. They are also sensitive pulse points on the body so for comfort there is a high, snug collar and thumb loops at the end of the sleeves, which eliminate drafts around the wrists. The hood fits perfectly underneath the hood of a shell layer, and the snug fit lets it move with your head to never get in the way. The garment has a slight back drop to create extra comfort. The cutting of the garment from a piece of fabric is optimized to minimize production waste. The fabric is dyed using only Bluesign certified dyestuff. Bluesign is a third-party organization monitoring to make sure no substances are used that can cause harm to people or nature. All the water that is used is cycled back into the production.
