Classic Timeless Black

A wardrobe classic re-imagined for the conscious consumer, Altiir's Women's Neo-Classic Biker Jacket in Black is a true investment for your ethical wardrobe.

The jacket's classic tailored motorcycle style is given a modern edge in black Piñatex (pineapple leather) which, like animal leather, will soften and age gracefully over time, moulding to your body for a beautiful 'I've owned it forever' look and the ultimate cruelty-free comfort.

The style features an asymmetrical zip closure, multiple pockets (internal and external), inbuilt belt and belt loops, sleeve expansion zip cuffs and stud snap buttons that can be used to attach an optional Altiir collar in either natural or black (sold separately).

- Outer: 100% Piñatex
- Lining: 100% Cupro Bemberg cotton

Piñatex is a natural sustainable textile made from the fibres of pineapple leaves. The leaves are the by-product of an existing industry, and no additional land, water, fertilisers or pesticides need to be used, so the raw material has a very low environmental impact compared to other textile crops.

Sustainable and long-wearing, Piñatex is proving itself a beautiful alternative to leather with a unique and unconventional texture. Like animal leather, with each wear it softens and 'ages', moulding to your body shape.

Unlike traditional leather production, which is very toxic to both tannery workers and the environment, the production process for Piñatex does not involve any harmful chemicals. Further, Piñatex provides an additional, stable income stream to pineapple farmers who otherwise face the challenges of seasonal employment, and aims to support positive social and economic development within farming communities.

Piñatex is a vegan product and no animal by-products are used in any stage of its production.

Materials: Kowtow

Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. It is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, and the use of genetically-engineered seed is prohibited.

Fairtrade certification

All Kowtow cotton is certified by Fairtrade Labelling Organisations International (FLO). Fairtrade empowers farmers to negotiate with buyers to secure better prices for their cotton. Every season, certified farmer groups receive a premium to be spent on community projects such as medical costs, irrigation schemes to conserve rainwater, books and clothes for school children, farmer education, training and upgrades.

Kowtow's cotton is organically farmed and free from genetically modified seeds to benefit the soil, cotton and farmers. Crops are rain-fed and hand-picked. Organic farming is achieved through companion planting, crop rotations and on-site green waste composting to eliminate the use of chemicals harmful to farmers and their families. Cotton is a sustainable, recyclable and biodegradable fiber.

Sustainable trims

Kowtow only uses sustainably sourced trims. The label's buttons are made in Italy from recycled hemp. Its denim tacks and sliders are nickel-free and made in a SA8000-certified factory in Germany. They are tested by OEKO-TEX for harmful substances and come under the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) and ISO 14000 environmental management standard.

GOTS-approved printing, dyeing & washing

Kowtow's prints and fabrics use Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) approved inks and dyes, which are free from chlorine bleach, toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde and aromatic solvents. The brand only uses GOTS-approved washes for its garments, from lightweight jersey to denim. GOTS ensures sustainable use and treatment of water used in these processes.
