- Product description
Inspired by traditional European work shirts with centuries of history. Now in a contemporary design - made from a material from the future.
A comfortable, unisex shirt/ overshirt that works just as well for chilling out as for actual work. The size is unisex and a generous fit.
Garments require very different materials than a backpacks. For this project, Bergans and Spinnova has partnered up with Halley Stevenson of Scotland to bring in their expertise in fabric dyeing and finishing. Far from just a refined backpack material, this material has worked as a test bed for optimising the fibre, the weaving and the finishing - making a fabric that is versatile and comfortable. We are now able to use a Tencel blend instead of organic cotton, which gives the material a softer touch. Halley Stevensons has used their expertise to give the Spinnova x Bergans fabric a far better touch and feel, so that it now can be used for next-to-skin apparel. Halley Stevensons has also contributed with dyeing of the fabric, which of course is free of harmful chemicals and 100% recyclable within the Spinnova process. Every bit of the process is scaled up to approach a commercial production – Weaving, finishing, dyeing - have been industrialized. The pool of material has increased by 500% - which means that more people can buy into the Collection of Tomorrow and follow the innovations in close. Locally made In a pandemic-plagued world, the Bergans team turned to Grinakervev, a small-scale weaver and sewing company in Norway. This has enabled us to develop and manufacture the shirts incredibly fast, even though Grinakervev can only make 4 shirts per day.
