Fluff Stuff textile fillings and products are produced from Typha Latifolia, which are cultivated on rewetted Finnish peatlands. By processing the tender fibres of this aqueous plant, Fluff Stuff produces a textile filling material with similar properties to down feathers and polyester fibres.

The Fluff Stuff project is an entrepreneurial project based on learnings from the Creative Sustainability Master’s program. To date, Fluff Stuff comprises of a core team and a network of experts, many of which are either graduates or current students at Aalto University.
