This autumn Fristads complements their environmentally declared collection Fristads Green with a shell jacket and a quilted lightweight jacket. That means it is now possible to dress in environmentally declared workwear year-round.
”This is an important addition to our Green range. Our aim has been for the production of the garments to have as minimal impact on the environment as possible, and in comparison to a traditionally produced shell jacket the production of this environmentally declared jacket results in a half as large impact on the environment,” says Lene Jul, Product Management Director at Fristads.
Fristads Green is the world’s first environmentally declared clothing collection and was launched in autumn 2019. All Fristads Green products have an environmental product declaration, an EPD, showing the garments total impact on the environment.
“The jackets can be used together or separately, depending on the temperature and weather, making it possible to dress in environmentally declared workwear year-round,” says Anastasios Lappas, Head of Design and Innovation at Fristads.
The autumn news completes the assortment
The autumn news also include High Vis Craftsman stretch trousers, Class 1 in the modern trouser model FAS G – making the FAS G range complete. In addition, a water- and wind proof shell jacket in GORE-TEX® material is added to the range, as well as an updated version of the jogger trouser.
“This autumn we have focused on complementing our assortment within building and construction as well as broadening our offer in our environmentally declared collection Fristads Green,” says Lene Jul, Product Management Director at Fristads.
Green Shell Jacket 4922 GRS and Green Quilted Jacket 4101 GRP are launched in September 2020.
