The Wu-Tang Clan's RZA has launched a limited-edition vegan puffer jacket made with recycled plastic bottles collected from the ocean.

The rapper's lifestyle company, 36 Chambers partnered both German contemporary vegan outerwear brand Embassy of Bricks and PETA to create the Flying Guillotine Puffer Jacket.

The coat features a colorful interior, and the hood is emblazoned with the words 'Our Heads No Longer Belong to Us', a line from the Taiwanese film Master of the Flying Guillotine.

'Humane ways'

"As we evolve as a people through technology and ingenuity, we have the ability through humane ways to fashion garments that not only serve our purpose but also, more importantly, abandon the unnecessary cruelty to animals," RZA said.

"While down items harm animals and the planet, this warm, trendy vegan coat made with 100 percent recycled ocean plastic will help PETA save animals," added PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman.

"The Flying Guillotine Puffer Jacket is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to wear their heart on their sleeve this winter."

The jacket, which you can buy here, costs $336 and 15 percent of proceeds will be donated to PETA.
