Woolrich John Rich & Bros. has collaborated for FW 10 with the Japanese company Nanamica, best known for its innovations in functional fabric. The special limited edition range will be exclusively distributed via WP store retail and to the best Woolrich retailers. Nanamica, which means “house of the seven seas,” is dedicated to combining various aspects of life created by people of all different backgrounds and places. Nanamica is the first-ever company to manufacture 100% high-density cotton gore-tex, found exclusively in Japan. Additionally, it has introduced a “hybrid-down” insulate by infusing a ceramic powder to traditional down. The Japanese producer has brought their innovative technologies to three popular Woolrich pieces. The items of this collaboration will be offered under the label Woolrich & Nanamica.
