“When it comes to protecting our planet, we treat it as an urgent matter and we firmly support all forms of environmental protection.”
—Jiawei Qiu (Kevin Chiu), The Founder of Orolay
Fibers & Materials
As a clothing brand, we deeply care about our mother nature and we realize the environmental changes from pollutants increase to animal extinction over the years. We believe environmental protection is important to every community and individual. At Orolay, we hope to form a closed-loop industrial chain starting with choosing eco-friendly fibers and materials for our products. We follow four aspects when it comes to choosing fibers and materials: renewable, recyclable, highly degradable, and animal friendly.
The Responsible Down Standard (RDS)
From 2021, all the new Orolay down jackets use down that meets the Responsible Down Standard. In 2022, Orolay became certified as a brand under the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). We’re proud to join this community along with other global brands in ensuring that down and feathers don’t cause unnecessary harm. The RDS respects the welfare of birds and geese, from hatching to slaughter, and prohibits any removal of down or feathers from live birds (live-plucking or molt-harvesting).

To eliminate waste and protect our environment, we have produced products that are strictly adhered to the 3Rs of recycling: reduce, reuse, and recycle. In this particular series, we employed 310T Matte Recycled Nylon fabric. 310T Matte Recycled Nylon is 100% recycled Nylon that comes from a recycled fishing net. It fulfills the required Global Recycled Standard (GRS). Global Recycled Standard applies to all products containing at least 20% recycled materials. Companies that are involved in the entire supply chain, including suppliers of semi-finished products, must meet the standards required by GRS certification.

Different from the regular down jacket, we developed jackets with eco-friendly Sorona® filler. Sorona® is an innovative fabric that offers high-performance qualities and impressive environmental benefits, making it a sustainable choice for those who care about protecting the planet.
Sorona® polymer is made from 37% natural, renewable resources instead of petrochemical raw materials. It uses 30% less energy than nylon polymers that rely on petrochemical raw materials. This means we can reduce our dependence on non-renewable resources and help protect the planet. Moreover, Sorona® emits 63% less carbon dioxide than nylon polymers made with petrochemical raw materials. By choosing Sorona®, we can reduce our energy consumption and lower our carbon footprint.
Our commitment to the future
In the future, we want to expand our selection of fibers and materials. We hope to incorporate more environment-friendly fibers and materials in production. In doing so, we are launching ”Earthugger“, a collection that features our sustainability products, made from eco-friendly materials. We are open to collaborating with NGOs, and we are dedicated to giving back to our community. At Orolay, we are not only committed to environmental protection ourselves but also committed to helping our supply chain to make an impact. Our ultimate goal in environmental protection is to protect our planet and natural sources and leave a healthy planet for future generations. At Orolay, we embrace our beloved including our mother nature.
