Mountain Designs launches coffee clothing

rsz_mountainAustralian outdoor clothing retailer, Mountain Designs, has launched a new clothing range made from recycled coffee grounds.

The range, inclusive of men’s, women’s and children’s vests, has insulation manufactured from a mix of recycled coffee fibre, which benefits include drying quickly, and absorbing odours.

The collection has been more than 18 months in the making, according to Mountain Design’s product developer, Sandra Heidemann.

“Mountain Designs has always used ethically sourced down but we wanted to go further and not just use natural material, but reclaim and re-use waste,” she said.

“We continue striving to be at the forefront of design and technology in outdoor and travel wear.

“Our team of in-house designers and product specialists are constantly evaluating our products and researching and testing new ways to make them more resilient, useful and comfortable in outdoor conditions”.

Mountain Designs employs more than 350 people in more than 40 stores throughout Australia.
