Loden originates from the Alps in Austria and was developed to ensure a warm, windproof and light fabric yet highly durable. The fabric undergoes lenghty processes to obtain these characteristics, from yarn selection – dyeing – spinning and weaving it goes into the fulling process, witch is the signature process resulting in shrinkage of the fabric of up to 30%. It is then brushed with a fuller´s teasel and the nap is clipped, a process witch is repeated a number of times until the fabric provides great warmth for the weight, and is highly supple, windproof, and extremely durable.
For extra strength on knees and back we have added waxed cotton canvass with Norwegian Woolinside in the back for extra warmth.
Ventilation zippers in the sides complete these highly technical and all natural knickerbockers, which are probably our most veratile knickerbockers yet for most of your outdoor activities across most seasons
