Our brand, KAPOK KNOT, is a brand dedicated to kapok aiming to be the best in the world.
As the name suggests, it uses natural cotton derived from a plant called Kapok. Kapok is mainly grown in Southeast Asia and is treated as a foliage plant in Japan.
The cotton produced by Kapok has attracted a great deal of attention for its highly functional and eco-friendly characteristics. Commercialization has been difficult so far
For that reason, it has been used for limited purposes, such as life jacket stuffing and cushions.
Kapok's features are as follows
This ethical down kapok™ is light and warm
Kapok fiber is hollow inside,
it is said to be 1/8 the weight of cotton
This lightness makes a "500g jacket"
Kapok is plant-derived , so unlike synthetic polyester, it " breathes "
It has a function called moisture absorption heat generation that absorbs moisture and warms it, realizing both lightness and warmth. Because of these characteristics, kapok is also called "down that grows on trees" and "white silk cotton". Ethical Down Kapok™ is a sheet made by mixing this kapok with recycled polyester.
Kapok cotton refers to the cotton obtained from the nuts of Kapok.
Although it is plant-based, it does not use the tree itself, so
no need to cut down forests
As demand for kapok increases, employment creation and greeningin Southeast Asia, and forest conservation cycles will be born.
Conventional down was made from waterfowl feathers. It is said that about 30 feathers are used in one down jacket.
There are several ways to collect feathers. It is also known as a method for collecting high-quality feathers.
Some companies have clearly adopted a method other than hand-picking, but there are also companies that have not announced their method of collection. Kapok used in kapok knot products is derived from tree nuts, so there is no need to worry about that fact
