The ecologyst upgrade of the classic quilted vest, with all-natural and sustainably sourced textiles that are warm, water repellent, and wind-resistant. We’ve sourced 100% wool insulation, organic cotton poplin lining, and light but durable responsibly sourced wool outer — replacing traditionally used nylons and poly/plastic insulations. All four layers are then combined at a heritage quilting mill in Manitoba, using a vertical wave stitch that decreases offcuts and fabric waste.

The Quilted Wool Vest is made for multi-season wear, suitable both in winter and the shoulder seasons. Snap closure allows more freedom of movement, with a curved back hem to ensure that whether walking or biking you’re protected from the elements. The lines on this design are clean and minimal with a curved collarless neckline and low profile patch pockets.

Made in Canada - this item was manufactured at our factory in Victoria, British Columbia. As a slow apparel company with a focus on ‘fewer, better’ we want to ensure that each piece we create is as environmentally conscious and low waste as possible.

For more information about the sustainable fabrics and low waste design process of this garment, please see our Field Notes - The Quilted Collection.

Outer: 100% Wool, Insulation: 100% Wool, Lining: 100% Organic Cotton.

Female model is 5'9" and wears a size small. 

Wool is highly durable and anti-microbial, meaning it really doesn't need to be cleaned very often. If you must clean it, here's how:
  • Spot clean or eco-dry clean only
  • Lay flat to dry and store
  • Do not hand wash
  • Do not machine wash or dry

Stunning Piece of Superior Quality

Where can I begin ... This Quilted Vest is the crown jewel of my outwear. It's classically cut with a minimalist flair, meaning it goes with practically everything I already own. This vest is also much warmer than it lets on to be, because of the wool insulation; I've found it can be a great replacement for heavier/bulkier insulation throughout many seasons. Add in that it's handmade in Canada, and it's well worth the investment.
