The first-ever cooler completely insulated with pure plant fibers.
Designed and made here in Canada.

We’ve been hearing about milkweed and its phenomenal insulating properties for some years. This relatively unknown gem has been used here and there, most notably in high-performance winter apparel. By preserving body warmth and keeping cold outside, our 100% milkweed-insulated mittens, for example, are warmer than any other insulating material, while having a much better environmental and ethical footprint.

But insulation also works backwards.

Keeping cold inside, and heat outside. Starting from this universal principle, we understood it was possible to use milkweed fibers as a thermal barrier… in a cooler!

We are so thrilled to present the world’s first cooler insulated entirely with milkweed floss, our Canadian silk. This insulated bag performs just as well as synthetic equivalents, but with a much smaller environmental footprint during its lifecycle. With its 100% hemp outershell, its easy-to-clean interior lining and naturally antibacterial properties, the Lasclay cooler will keep your food and drinks ice-cold during beach picnics, get-togethers in the park or camping trips.

After very promising results in our first test phases, we are finally doing real life validations this summer, to begin selling the product next summer. We are proud to introduce another eco-friendly, vegan and Canadian product, made with local materials. 

Harvested, designed and crafted with passion in Canada.

Stay tuned on our cooler and the next version of our best-selling milkweed mittens by subscribing to our newsletter, right here.

Why Lasclay?

Respectful of monarchs

By purchasing a Lasclay product, you are directly helping the monarchs, an endangered species. An abundance of milkweed in rural areas provides them with invaluable breeding grounds before their great migration, after which we harvest the floss.

Responsible and cruelty-free

Oil-based synthetic insulation destroys entire ecosystems and the down industry needlessly causes suffering to geese and ducks. Milkweed is a perennial and indigenous plant. It is grown without pesticides or fertilizers and performs better than down or synthetic.
