Material / Natural Fibers Only
On the way to mvdham we were looking for a midlayer fabric out of natural fibers only. We could not find anything which is warming, regulating, light and natural. So we decided to develop something new.
Within the range of natural fibers we especially admire the natural functions of silk and wool. Silk is the perfect regulator. It reacts to our body temperature and keeps us either warm or cold depending on our needs. Wool keeps us warm and cosy but it is also a brilliant regulator. It can hold water around a 1/3 of its own weight and neutralizes smells.
We found a very light silk and merino perform fabric and padded them together by using 100% SPORTS Wool/Lavalan (lavalan.com) as insulation. We used a small grid for the padding and decided for wavy seams to achieve as much puff effect as possible.
The result is a new functional fabric which is warming, breathing, light, and out of natural fibers only. With this fabric we will neither feel too cold nor too warm. It is just the perfect regulator to our body temperature and a brilliant companion on our active way through the city.
EtaProof is a fascinating natural technical fabric out of 100% Cotton (stotzfabrics.ch). It is not only waterproof but also windproof and breathable. It suits our technical needs in the city perfectly as we stay dry for at least one hour in heavy rain.
The finest long-stapled cotton is used for the spinning and it is woven not only with one warp but with two warps to achieve this crisp and not easy to rip result. We use EtaProof for our outer layer garments:
the ALL WEATHER COAT and the ALL WEATHER JACKET.
