The different elements of the suit include organic wool which is fully traceable back to the farms from where it is produced, a lining made from recycled plastic bottles, canvas (used inside the main body of the suit) made from recycled polyester and reclaimed buttons. It also contains pockets and waistband made from reclaimed fabric and labels made from recycled polyester.
