Size Guide

Highest quality specially blended Loden wool combined with centuries of tradition

A special kind of wool clothing called Loden originated in the high Alpine region of Tyrol, Austria. Centuries ago the wool fabric was only worn by the peasantry, but in the 19th century the Habsburg Archduke Johann, a champion of the common folk, popularized the style with the nobility, including his nephew Emperor Franz Josef. 

What makes it a Loden:

Loden wool becomes Loden through a wet finishing process using heat, tension and soap making it highly durable, water resistant and warm: perfect for cold wet winters. This original Loden is woven by Pischl & Pischl. Best of all, it’s made from pure renewable sheep and alpaca wool fibers.
