It’s organic, unfortunately there was no other way.
The company for vegan, ecologically and fairly produced fashion was founded in 2007 by Vinzenz “VFX” Johow, carpenter and furniture designer, with the aim of creating a real alternative to fast fashion. A fair price policy makes sustainable ThokkThokk clothing accessible to everyone.
Kapok pioneer from Munich
A revolutionary development of Thokk Thokk is the use of (biodegradable, fair trade!) Kapok fibers for the insulation of jackets, vests and parkas. In combination with 30 percent recycled PET, Kapok is a wonderfully warm, ethically correct alternative to goose and duck down. Plus: The wild, tropical tree fruit is water-repellent due to its natural wax layer. The hard-wearing and tear-resistant outer material is made from 100 percent recycled fishing nets.
Seed the Trees – Stop talking, start planting!
In cooperation with the “Plant for the Planet” children’s and youth initiative, a tree is planted in Mexico for every Kapok jacket sold by Thokk Thokk.
Good to know: Kapok
Kapok does not require additional irrigation or pesticides. It is not a food and also grows on rough terrain, so it does not need arable land. The pods are harvested by hand by local farmers, who are paid fairly.
It is mainly produced in India, where the organic cotton used is also grown. With the purchase of a Kapok t-shirt (available since 2019), the local NGO Save (Social Awareness and Voluntary Education) is committed to combating child labor in the textile industry and the rights of women and workers.
