Vollebak is a company that pushes the boundaries of what a jacket can be. A little more than a month ago the company debuted an “Indestructable” jacket that’s made of ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene, also known as Dyneema Black. Now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vollebak has announced a jacket that’s 65% copper.
"When Covid-19 hit we were already working on the future of intelligent, disease-resistant clothing and we'd chosen copper as a natural first building block."
"This first concept is focused on proving it's possible to make pieces of clothing almost entirely out of copper. Now we've done that we can start exploring what form they take and what function they can have."
