The Milkweed Laurentia Collaboration

Altitude Sports and Quartz Co. have once again joined forces to create the exclusive women’s Laurentia milkweed parka. This stylish parka is insulated with Canadian milkweed fibres, a locally grown plant that promotes the survival of the at-risk Monarch Butterfly by giving them a seasonal nesting place. Monark™ then cultivates the milkweed into a plant fibre that is extremely lightweight and makes for one of the most thermally efficient forms of winter parka insulation. This season, the Laurentia has a heavier 200g milkweed fibre fill and an updated longer-length of coverage, providing a warm and stylishly fitted silhouette on even the coldest winter evenings. It also has a weatherproof Cambridge polyester outer shell that has a polished appearance. The highly unique Laurentia is entirely made in Canada and is a collaboration piece challenging the way we think about parka design and winter fashion.

  • Insulated with 200g fill weight of plant-based milkweed fibres

Detachable Hood | Longer Sleeves | Fish Tail

Quartz Co. supplied the Laurentia with a beautiful and fully detachable hood, which is insulated and features a Heritage adjustment with a pull-drawcord along its back. Its high collar helps seal in warmth when worn with-or-without the hood. The durable two-way front zipper is covered by a weather protective flap, which secures with circular buttons. Like the parka’s hem, this season's Laurentia has sleeve cuffs that are lengthened for improved warmth and coverage. The back-rear hem of the parka has a slight fishtail, improving its overall freedom of movement.
