We strive to avoid the use of synthetic materials in all stages of the product’s life cycle from production to packaging. One of our top priorities is to find eco-friendly alternatives to plastic whenever possible. That’s why our clothes is packed in recyclable paper bags and boxes when they are shipped from our factory to our warehouse, and from our warehouse to your doormat.
We choose local subcontractors when possible, and all textiles are made in Europe. Our skis are handmade in Sweden, and the production is powered by 100 percent renewable energy. We are looking for proven partners focusing on quality, welfare and good working conditions.

Merino wool is a natural fiber that is environmentally friendly, biodegradable and an excellent thermoregulator. Naturally lighter and softer than any other wool, merino wool is easy to wear next to the skin and keeps your body at a comfortable temperature in any weather conditions. Given these outstanding qualities, merino wool is widely used in high-performance outdoor clothing. Our mulesing free merino wool origins from Australia.
Alpaca is a natural and biodegradable fiber that comes from Alpacas, a fluffy animal from the South American branch of the camel family. Alpaca is hypoallergenic, breathable, moisture wicking, and has a high durability strength. Alpacas have a light environmental footprint because they feed mostly on native grassland and do not decimate natural vegetation. Their soft, padded feet are not harsh on the terrain, allowing them to freely graze without destroying the ecosystem.
To avoid using synthetic fibers in our garment, we searched the market for a sustainable high-performance fabric to use in our anoraks. We landed on Ventile, the most effective, natural, all-weather cotton textile. Ventile cotton is a tough but soft fabric made from long-staple cotton. Its chief attributes are its soft hand, windproof quality, and high breathability. It works excellent in cool-to-cold, dry conditions and its perfect for windy and snowy days in the slopes. The fabric has been developed in England since 1943 and the production is subject to some of the most stringent regulations in the world.
