Vintage fleece jackets - cozy, warm and wonderfully light
It's a cold day but you don't want to put on that heavy winter jacket? Then the vintage fleece jacket is the perfect fit for you . The specialty of fleece fabric, also called nonwoven fabric, is that the fabric is formed by tying plush handles, which are then cut open and roughened t1>. This has many advantages for us as a carrier:
- Fleece machined goods have a high level of thermal insulation , particularly in relation to the low weight of the knitted fleece jacket.
- Compared to other light fabrics, it is tear-resistant and durable .
- Due to the structure of the surface, fleece jackets do not have to be ironed .
- Because they are made of plastic, fleece jackets are quick-drying and water-repellent .
It should be noted that the vintage fleece jackets do not protect against strong wind and rain. However, with our focus on sustainability, one aspect of the knitted fleece jacket makes us think about it, namely the emission of microplastics Water cycle Oceans, lakes, rivers, beaches. We are therefore of the opinion that fleece jackets should be bought second hand in order to work with the fleece, which we have already produced. If you really want to have a new fleece jacket, you should make sure that the plastic is recycled to a high degree. There are numerous manufacturers such as Patagonia who produce fleeces from PET bottles.
How did vintage fleece jackets come about in the 1970s?
Just as interesting as the fleeces is the historical background of fleece jackets. The maximum age of a fleece jacket can be precisely dated to 1979 . At that time, Walden Mills Industries Inc. presented the velor fabric (mostly made of polyester) in the USA for the first time. The company sold these first fleece jackets as well as the knitted fleece jacket under the name Polartec .
Among the vintage fleece jackets, we particularly like the teddy fleece jacket. This is characterized by a particularly roughened structure of the surface, which creates a little bear look . The teddy fleece jacket is therefore still our hot styling tip in the cold season!
