Stone Island _ 71229 MAN MADE SUEDE-TC Parka in Man Made Suede-TC, a non-woven fabric, made with nylon microfibres and polyurethane resins, engineered through a complex industrial process leading to a mattress of 22 hyper thin microfibre layers, with the help of a polyethylene component. The material is then impregnated with resins and coagulated. The result is a substrate which is lightened through washes dissolving the polyethylene component. The material is then treated to achieve the final suede aspect. STONE ISLAND achieves, for the first time in history, to dignify a coagulated material through garment dyeing. The addition of a special agent to the dye recipe makes the garment anti-drop. #StoneIsland #ManMadeSuedeTC #GarmentDyed

For the first time in the brand’s history, the parka is composed of a coagulated suede material achieved through garment dyeing. To make this unique fabrication, the garment undergoes an intensive industrial process and through washes, the garment’s polyurethane component dissolves. Lastly, the material is then treated to achieve the man made suede fabric.
Featured on a mustard-colored parka, the silhouette is also highlighted with a unique branded hood that also acts as a neck warmer, while decked with a series of pockets and removable Stone Island patch logo on the arm sleeves.
