Our Gabardine Trench is a sleek raincoat that uses organic cotton and Swiss weaving to craft a naturally beautiful protective layer. The structural coat’s cotton comes from America’s long-staple cotton belt in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. It is then tightly woven in the gabardine tradition and dyed in Switzerland without the use of harmful chemicals. The fabric is then brought to New York City’s garment district where it is expertly sewn and finished with naturally dyed corozo buttons. With a tailored fit, water- repellent weaving, simple, elegant detailing, and a slate grey color to reflect the stormy sky, it’ll be your go-to top layer for spring showers.Discover our process

FARMING | USA
For summer staples, there was no better place to begin than with cotton. It’s natural, breathable and lightweight. But not all cotton is equal. Conventional cotton is grown with chemical cocktail of pesticides and insecticides that is not only making the farm laborers sick, it’s destroying the earth’s soil, and water systems. The Gabardine Trench is structured and soft. The softness is from the cotton fiber itself, which is extra-long staple organic cotton that comes from America’s long-staple cotton belt in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California.
SPINNING & WEAVING | Switzerland
Gabardine is a highly specialized fabric that spun and knit so tightly that it’s naturally water repellant, without having to resort to harsh chemicals. For that process, our American cotton is sent to Hermann Buhler Yarns in Winterthur, Switzerland for spinning and Jenny Fabrics in Ziegelbrucke, Switzerland for weaving. Both facilities are GOTS certified. GOTS, standing for Global Organic Textile Standard, is a leading processing standard for fibers which takes into account both environmental and social criteria.
DYEING | Switzerland
Our fabric is then sent to nearby Herisau, Switzerland for dyeing by Cilander AG, a facility certified by Oeko-Tex and GOTS. Oeko-Tex, also based in Switzerland, is an independent testing and certification system to ensure that harmful chemicals are not being used in the dyeing process.
BUTTONS | Italy
Our buttons are made of corozo nut, which comes from the Tagua Palm, a tree native to Ecuador. Corozo is elegant, natural and sustainable. Raw corozo is ivory in color, and the porous surface of corozo makes it prime material for dyeing. The buttons are made at Gritti Group, Grassobbio, Italy. (Oeko-Tex Standard 100) and are dyed with low-impact dyes. Not only is corozo easy to dye, it is also resistant to fading and highly durable.
SEWING | USA
A trench coat should last for decades, that’s what we believe. The sewers at C&J Sportswear in New York’s Garment District use their incredible talent and attention to detail to finely cut and sew each piece.
