Fabrics & sustainability
The outer fabric is made of “Tiroler Loden” – a blend of new wool, cashmere and polyamide. Our Loden is manufactured by a Tyrolean company that has been producing these fabrics since 1864. In the past, Loden was crafted by farmers at home as these fabrics proved to be light as well as very resilient and weatherproof. Then later on Loden was refined to become an elegant woollen material favoured by kings and princes. We chose a very light Loden and added a water- and dirt-repellent finish.
The jacket’s lining is made of 100% organic cotton and features a crease-resistant finish. This fabric and its manufacture meet ecological certification standards and approved working conditions for employees along the entire production chain.
The functional fabric used is 100% recycled – the nylon percentage is produced from industrial waste in Italy. It is bluesign® certified und guarantees a responsible use of resources as well as the application of clean processes with monitored water and air emissions.
The silk used for the breast pocket handkerchief is called “peace silk” or “non-violent silk” as it is extracted without harming or killing the caterpillar. Furthermore the silk cocoons are bred organically and the production process benefits local community economies on a fair trade basis. As a result the fabric and its manufacture meet ecological certification standards and approved working conditions for employees along the entire production chain.
Our zippers are produced by YKK from recycled PET.
100% made in Portugal: This way we can keep transport routes short and guarantee that the fabric manufacturer and assembler adhere to all EU work and safety regulations.
At least 50% of the energy used for the production in Portugal comes from renewable sources.
Packaging, storage and shipping: our complete logistics operation is based in beautiful Southern Germany, making our production chain as short and efficient as possible.
