Deterra is the first 100% bio-based technical jacket. Tierra, the company behind it, firmly believes that every step contributes to change the world and that through material choice and simple manufacturing decisions, anyone can greatly influence a product’s environmental impact. In their design process they prioritised the implementation of circular design strategies, such as longevity of the product and an accurate research and application of materials, all while considering how it will be used.
Their biggest innovation has been the creation and the detection of these complex network materials which involve very different actors and organizations. They have demonstrated that bio-based materials are able to meet the most demanding requirements.
