Vollebak’s ‘Garbage Sweater’ Is Made From Recycled Bulletproof Vests

Jul 12, 2021

Category: Gear

Vollebak is known for making the toughest garments on the planet out of the most unexpected materials, and their new Garbage Sweater is one of the purest displays of their brand ethos yet.

The name Garbage Sweater is no hyperbole — this garment is literally made from trash. But not just any trash. Vollebak took old bulletproof vests and firefighter suits that were on their way to the dump and repurposed them into a sweater that’s warm, soft, and — since this is Vollebak we’re talking about here — fire-resistant. The sweater features a high collar with an offset three-button placket, but as stylish as it is, it’s what the sweater represents that’s most impressive. With Vollebak now scouring landfills in their pursuit of creating more sustainable clothing, the company is continuing to lead the way on innovation in an industry that is notorious for its wastefulness. The Garbage Sweater will be launched later in July, and you can sign up for the waitlist now to gain access at Vollebak’s website.
