Se sei un barbone di Vancouver capita che Arc’Teryx ti regala i poncho di GORE-TEX®. Il materiale lo regalano loro, lo sbatti di cucire i capi i loro dipendenti. Andiamo a Vancouver.

Com’era? Barboni di lusso?

Based in North Vancouver, Canada, Arc’teryx is bordered by the rugged Coast Mountains and the dense urban landscape of Canada’s third largest city. The Birds Nest Project is an initiative inspired by employees with a desire to give something back to the local neighbouring community.

Having our own manufacturing factory near Vancouver allows for local production and in-house research and development. It also leads to an environmental challenge: the accumulation of discontinued and residual outdoor performance fabrics. The project repurposes excess fabric and creates weatherproof capes to help offset the cold and wet of winter for those living on the street.

Now in its third year, volunteer Arc’teryx employees donate their time to sew the GORE-TEX® capes at our local factory. The cape is designed by our in-house product designers to be simple to manufacture, increasing the numbers that can be made by our volunteers. It’s also designed to be easy to use and provide a maximum amount of wet weather protection.
