These bottoms are waterproof thanks to the durability and coating of the fabric and sealed seams. The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in mm of a water jet (test based on standard ISO 811). Our material is resistant to the pressure from 2,000 mm of water. The finished product is approved in a shower test in the lab, where we recreate the conditions of an average downpour: 60 L water per square metre per hour for one hour.
Dyeing: DOPE DYED
Fabric dyeing requires lots of water, with large amounts of wastewater also released from the dye vats. To reduce this environmental impact, we use a dope dyeing technique, where the pigment is applied during production of the thread itself.
