What material will my cap and gown be made of?

Jostens Kinderkraft®, Academic and BDG gowns are made from 100% breathable and lightweight Polyester.

The Elements CollectionTM uses a fabric from renewable managed forests. This Fabric is scientifically proven to completely biodegrade*.

*In a laboratory test conducted by an independent testing facility in accordance with ISO 15985 and ASTM D5511, complete biodegradation was achieved within 15 days on shredded samples of fabric used in the Elements Collection™ cap, gown and hood shell. Accelerated testing was conducted under anaerobic conditions pursuant to the standards set forth above. Results in municipal solid waste landfills will vary depending on sample size and environmental conditions including temperature, biological activity and exposure to moisture and oxygen.
