Klättermusen, a maker of mountaineering equipment, launched its first organically insulated outdoor jacket, the Farbaute.
A double winner at ISPO this year, the Farbaute won Gold in the Outdoors category and also took home the “Sustainability Achievement Award”.
Central to the design process was the brand’s challenge the industry’s reliance on synthetic fabrics and insulation techniques. With that in mind, the outer fabric is Katla Cotton, a Klättermusen designed fabric made from 100 percent organic cotton subjected to pressure and heat which results in a fabric that is windproof, water repellant and breathable. The jacket’s core insulation comes from a blend of RDS-certified White Goose Down, Swiss Wool and Biopolyester. A box-wall construction leaves no gap in the down for cold air pass through.
Head Designer Isabelle Liahaugen commented, “The Farbaute is a jacket of huge significance for Klättermusen and the wider outdoor industry. It’s the result of years of work refining and testing new fabrics and techniques. It’s a purposeful jacket that we’re very proud of. It’s safe, durable and beautiful for the wearer. We’ve proven that with patience and determination, there are natural alternatives to synthetic materials that minimize our customers’ impact on nature and still provide uncompromising commitment to the desired functionality.”
The Farbaute is available in three colors: Midnight Blue, Raven Burnt and Dusty Green
