Photograph By Meg Haywood-Sullivan

A brain bucket is for protection first and foremost, which the ASTM F 240-certified Smith Maze has covered. The eco story here is on the inside: its Evolve X-Static lining is constructed of up to 50 percent recycled silver with other recycled materials, creating a fabric that is 3.7 percent X-Static and 96.3 percent recycled polyester. Evolve X-Static has earned the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 accreditation, certifying that they support human ecology through biocompatibility and the absence of harmful substances in the manufacturing process.
