Fjallraven FW16 Collection: Green Is The New Black

    In the Fall of 2015, Fjallraven introduced a path-breaking innovation in the Keb Eco-shell series. Not that we haven’t launched pioneering innovations before — but this time it was different. Everything was perfect. The product. The timing. And the consumers’ newly awakened craving for sustainable action from the outdoor industry. The Keb Eco-shell Anorak won gold at ISPO and when Greenpeace recently fueled a well-targeted attack on the outdoor industry’s lack of sustainability leadership — Fjallraven got much deserved attention as a brand on the right track.
    It is with great excitement and anticipation that this unique momentum intersects with our brand’s determination to make sustainability our number one priority. Today, nothing is more relevant for the global outdoor consumer than to trace their gear and apparel upstream to determine whether the source of materials and production is ethical and environmentally sound. They will reject you in a blink of an eye, if you’re not up to par with their expectations. And being so well-positioned for these behavioural changes, Fjallraven is set to become a sustainability power brand.
    For Fall & Winter 2016, our award winning hardshell series is complemented with Ovik Eco-shell and Varmland Eco-shell. Our Down Promise is further deepened. We are now using PFC free impregnation across the brand.
    And the Re-Kanken is here, using a water-conserving SpinDye colouring technology and recycled polyester as raw material. And the best part of it all: it’s in total sync with our DNA. Who we are as a brand, is who we are as human beings. It all started with a love for nature and making gear that would allow as many people as possible to make nature a bigger part of life. That was our argument in 1960. And that is our argument today. WIthout nature, we are nothing.
