Organic Wool Jacket
01/1 – a woolen jacket with a wider fit. The slightly masculine shape adds a banded-meets-lapel collar and fold up sleeves. We would label our organic wool jacket "basic chic with a little twist".
Model is a German size 36 and wears the organic wool jacket in our size M/L.
ABOUT THE FABRIC
100% Organic certified pure wool. We think that to produce a winter jacket like our organic wool jacket, wool is a great choice. The raw material source is from contracted farmers in Australia, South Africa, and Europe. It was spun, woven and finished, including the dyeing, in Europe. The lining is made from Recycled Polyester made in Germany by Frankenberger. The buttons (100% vegan) are made in Germany by Augsburger Knopffabrik.
WHO MADE THIS JACKET
This organic wool jacket is designed in Munich by our mastermind and fantastic tailor Sabine Dicklberger. It is produced by our manufacturing partner Studio U&N near Chemnitz in Germany.
WHAT IS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS JACKET
The shape and the material of the organic wool jacket. Cosy wool and an oversize shape enable the jacket in autumn and spring and as a warm blazer in winter – team it up with chunky knits or any kind of long-sleeve and you got yourself a perfect allrounder.
