Tretorn - the rain jacket with an eco edge.
Posted on September 04 2018
Born out of the wet Scandinavian weather, Tretorn has made its mark in many places on earth. The waterproof outerwear products have been used at tennis courts, rainy streets in the city and in hazy desolated forests. Over the past 125 years, Tretorn has found new ways to develop new but sustainable products, with a love of protecting the environment at their core.
With a need to change how we interact with nature and find a more innovative approach of using resources. Tretorn don’t look at innovation only as what they make, but also how they make it and why they use their resources in the way they do.
Their mission is to be an inspiration and a role model for how businesses can interact with nature and create a more circular process.
“We are inspired by nature’s own ecosystem and we strongly believe in a process where nothing should go to waste. Products should last long, be reused and eventually repaired and recycled. We have also found new ways to look upon high quality waste as an opportunity, a resource to be harvested and developed into a circular process, while slowly eliminating the very concept of waste”. – Tretorn.
The Wings jacket is a real Tretorn classic. Available at The Mercantile in three colour options, the water-tight jacket is made of PVC free PU with heat-welded seams, plastic press buttons and an adjustable hood that provides effective protection from rain and wet weather. These are a rain jacket that continues Tretorn’s tradition of keeping generation after generation both dry and warm.
