Klättermusen Launches Organically Insulated Jacket

Mountaineering specialist Klättermusen has launched its first organically insulated outdoor jacket. A double winner at ISPO this year, the Farbaute won Gold in the Outdoors category and also took home the Sustainability Achievement Award.

Central to the design process was the brand’s challenge to the industry’s reliance on synthetic fabrics and insulation techniques. So, the outer fabric is Katla Cotton, a Klättermusen designed fabric made from 100% organic cotton. It’s subjected to pressure and heat which results in a fabric that is windproof, water repellent and breathable. 

The jacket’s core insulation comes from a blend of RDS-certified White Goose Down, Swiss Wool and Biopolyester; a box-wall construction leaves no gap in the down for cold air pass through. 

Head Designer Isabelle Liahaugen said, “The Farbaute is a jacket of huge significance for Klättermusen and the wider outdoor industry. It’s the result of years of work refining and testing new fabrics and techniques. It’s a purposeful jacket that we’re very proud of. It’s safe, durable and beautiful for the wearer.

“We’ve proven that with patience and determination, there are natural alternatives to synthetic materials that minimize our customers’ impact on nature and still provide uncompromising commitment to the desired functionality.”
