A bedding brand normally known for its down-filled products has turned its hand to recycling, with new duvets and pillows filled with vegan-friendly recycled plastic.
The Fine Bedding Company's NIMBUS Pearl SMARTDOWN range sees plastic bottles recycled into 'silky soft fibres' with the warmth and quality of the highest grade of feather down, says the brand.
Moreover, the filling is made in an 'eco factory', which creates 54 per cent less CO2 and saves up to 66 per cent of energy during manufacturing, while about 6.4 metres of landfill space is saved for every ton of plastic that is recycled.
“It's the way we spin the fibres in our pioneering fibre-blowing technique which creates comforting, down-like clusters which mimic the behaviour of down, while a loose cassette structure (just like our down filled duvets) holds volume, trapping air and warmth," explains Helen Johnson from NIMBUS.
The duvet, with a 280 thread count, sustainably sourced cotton cover, is available in Winter and All Year warmth options (from £129) with pillows (£45) to match. They're hypoallergenic and washable too.
