Vollebak’s Latest Hoodie Is Made From Compostable Plants & Pomegranate

Aug 18, 2020

Quite possibly more so than any other garment maker on the planet, Vollebak is constantly pushing the envelope in terms of sustainability and eco-friendly production methods while redefining what was thought possible in regards to an article of clothing’s shelf-life. After the recent unveiling of its “Garbage Watch,” Vollebak has now announced its Plant and Pomegranate Hoodie.

Similarly to the brand’s Plant and Algae T-Shirt, this new hoodie is made entirely from materials grown in nature and is 100% biodegradable and compostable. Despite looking and feeling like your average hoodie, this new item is produced through a manufacturing technique that sees sustainably harvested eucalyptus trees that are processed and then submerged in pomegranate dye in order to achieve the garment’s desired color. Several decades from now when you’re done with it, the hoodie can be tossed in the compost and returned to nature. Pricing has yet to be revealed, though the Vollebak Plant and Pomegranate Hoodie is slated for a launch next month. Interested parties can currently join the waiting list on Vollebak’s website linked below.
