Time to bundle up with the ultimate outerwear staple. When it comes to ethically made, cruelty-free and proudly vegan puffers, there's only one brand for the job. Enter Embassy of Bricks and Logs. We break down exactly why this stand out jacket is our number one pick for the season (and it's positive eco impact!).
Filling made from recycled plastic ocean waste? Yeah, we can get down with that...
Embassy of Bricks and Logs are an urban outerwear brand with pretty damn high aesthetic and ethical standards. After working in the streetwear fashion industry for over two decades, founder Niko Vatheuer - along with Nico Mirbach and wife, Anna - decided that he could set up his own brand and do things differently.
Working closely with non-profit organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the brand also is proudly vegan and cruelty-free - another reason to get behind them as opposed to other animal product based alternatives that use duck or goose down. They also have found an innovative solution to preventing damp, odour or bacteria from getting to the jackets (as opposed to the industry norm of the non-environmentally friendly silica gel) with their swing tags. Each does the same job by absorbing moisture, creating a protective bubble around each garment whilst they are shipped. All extracts used are plant-based and food safe. Double win!
Belfast Down Coat in Black • £310
Their design led outerwear not only looks good, but does good too. Each premium quality piece is made to last. For their padding, they use faux down filling made from 100% PET bottles collected from our oceans. No really, ocean waste. These incredible coats are well equipped to protect you when it's cold out. Quilted to evenly distribute the insulating faux down and each with wrist cuffs and some with large, flattering hoods to lock in heat, these are the true MVPs of the ethical outerwear industry. The brand values innovation and is constantly working on progressing their materials, so you know you are investing in some seriously well researched high-spec jackets.
