Have you ever wondered where your outdoor clothing comes from? You're probably aware of the general issues regarding climate change and the move within the fashion industry towards fairer manufacturing processes and more sustainable materials and you probably have a good idea of who is perceived to be leading the agenda and others that are maybe falling behind.
For outdoor brands it is a big problem. On the one hand they need to continue to make money but they are also starting to realise their responsibility towards the natural environment which at the end of the day is what gives rise to their existence in the first place. Vaude, Paramo, Bleed and United By Blue are leading the way and others like Patagonia are committed to improving by, for example, becoming PFC free by 2020.
At TheOutdoorBoutique we want to give you the assurance that everything has been manufactured with sustainable materials and some of nature’s best fibres such as organic cotton, merino wool, yak and hemp. The products we stock are also designed to last which means that you have to replace them less often and when you do the nature of the materials means they will naturally decompose or can be recycled when the time comes.
Of course no matter how strong the cause we still want products that look and feel great. With modern manufacturing methods the composition of the fabrics means they look and feel exceptional. Organic Cotton jeans that are tough yet soft, hemp shirts that look great, are easy care but are also exquisitely soft against your skin.
Sometimes it is hard to find the right products and we hope that we have taken the pain away for you. At TheOutdoorBoutique you will find a great selection of clothing that you can wear in the mountains, in the office or down the pub. Who knows what adventures await you and these clothes will not hold you back.
So please take a look and please get in touch if we don't have something you are looking for.
