Finnish outdoor clothing and equipment brand Halti and manufacturer of sustainable textile fibre Spinnova release the Cyclus unisex parka in stores in April.
The parka is part of the Kallio® by Halti collection, which includes technical and timeless styles for the urban environment. The parka will be available as a limited batch in Stockmann’s Halti store (4th floor) and online from April 4th. The parka is designed in Finland and manufactured in Estonia.
“We have extremely high criteria for all the materials we use at Halti: not only do we look for recyclability and sustainability, but the materials we use must withstand wear and tear, protecting their users from wind and horizontal rain. It is fascinating to use new materials and learn how they work in practice.”
“In the design, I wanted to go back to Halti’s roots – not as a replica but as a modern urban tribute. The starting points for the design were timelessness, technical functionality, and respect for nature. These criteria led us to choose SPINNOVA® fibre as the main material. The parka withstands various weather conditions, can be easily repaired, and its materials can be recycled at the end of its lifecycle."
The Cyclus unisex parka combines two next-generation technologies in its production: made from SPINNOVA® fibre, the parka has also been dyed with Swedish textile technology company imogo’s hi-precision dyeing technology.
Very little water and no harmful chemicals are used in the production of SPINNOVA® fibre. The fibre is also entirely biodegradable and recyclable. Sustainability and easy repair are considered in every detail in the design as well as the recyclability of materials.
