MOON PARKA EVERY JIANT LEAP BEGINS WITH ONE SMALL STEP

FROM CONCEPT TO PRODUCT

At Spiber, we believe it is our responsibility to help drive the shift away from a consumption-based economy trapped by reliance on petrochemicals and other limited resources towards a more forward-looking, sustainable society. In 2015, Spiber and GOLDWIN began a collaboration aimed at contributing to this vision of a better world. We began by re-examining the connection between people and products and the ways in which we interact with materials, goods, and economies. We took these insights and worked to design a product that would support a cleaner lifestyle more in harmony with nature. The MOON PARKA, made available in 2019, represents our first concrete offering to those customers dreaming of a brighter tomorrow.

Brewed Protein™
Refined through many generations of our molecular design process, the Brewed Protein™ materials used in the MOON PARKA were specifically tailored for outdoor environments, resulting in an external layer with performance properties unmatched by existing protein materials.

Waterproof/breathable laminate
The outermost layer of the MOON PARKA utilises Brewed Protein™ materials which have undergone a waterproof/breathable laminating process, delivering protection from the elements and superior levels of comfort to the wearer.
CLEANDOWN®
The MOON PARKA utilises 900 fill power CLEANDOWN® padding to provide exceptionally snug heat retention.
VISLON® INTEGRA® zipper
The zipper located on the front of the MOON PARKA is made with the all-new VISLON® INTEGRA® zipper from YKK, which combines the zipper and parka fabric into a single fixed unit to deliver smooth opening and closing action.

EVERY GIANT LEAP BEGINS WITH ONE SMALL STEP

Opening the outer layer of the jacket reveals an image of our planet Earth suspended against the infinite depths of space. This is the striking view that greeted Neil Armstrong over 50 years ago during the Apollo 11 mission of 1969. The pursuit of progress and the willingness to attempt the impossible—to drive civilization to ever further frontiers—had finally brought humankind to this climactic step. Nevertheless, like all such endeavors, this achievement was the result of thousands of small steps taken before it. Much as Apollo 11’s legendary expedition to the harsh, unexplored lunar surface forever changed the meaning of the word moonshot, it is our hope that the launch of the MOON PARKA may serve to contribute, in some small way, as an innovation that drives human progress forward.

Evolve with us

In order to further our ability to address global issues, we’ve passed through countless cycles of our in-house feedback and improvement process while working on the MOON PARKA and other projects. Moving forward, encouraging adoption of our biobased Brewed Protein™ materials will require test data gained from actual product usage in real-world environments. Through our communication channels and ongoing maintenance programs, we hope to build long-lasting relationships with our customers which will help shape the future development of our products.
