As we dreamed vaVesta™ to life, we chose to fashion it from a fabric of notable quality: a fleece, made by world-renowned, Polartec, LLC. The name Polartec®, long synonymous with quality and integrity, is your assurance that repeated, gentle launderings will not cause vaVesta™ to pill or lose its soft, supple feel. Bonus: The fleece we chose has an 80% fiber content of recycled water bottles and is Made in USA.
Our Thermal Insert (a 100% Cotton Ripstop shell, filled with washed cherry pits) and our Nylon Tote Bag are also made from premium-quality goods. To support local industry and ensure the quality of our assembly equals the quality of our materials, we assemble vaVesta, Insert, and Tote Bag in the USA.
Originally called Polarfleece®, Polartec® was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the 100 Most Important Inventions of the 20th Century. Time cited Polartec® as a major textile innovation that revolutionized the way the world dresses for cold weather and listed Polartec® between the zipper and sliced bread.
