Universal Works Padded Short Parka in Olive Space Dye Nylon

Universal Works Padded Short Parka in Olive Space Dye Nylon


The Details

The 'Padded Short Parka' is as its name suggests, a shorter-fitting hooded parka with a multitude of pockets, that has been filled with Clo® Insulation. This particular iteration is produced in a beautiful 'space-dyed' nylon fabric, that is sourced from Kobe, Japan.


In David's own words, "this fabric is absolutely mental." Sourced from a revered fabric mill based in Kobe, Japan, the fabric is hand-processed in small batch quantities and then hand-dyed. Each roll of fabric is entirely different and consequently, because of the unique nature of the hand-dying processes, no two jackets are the same. The fabric has a distinctive, but almost subtle lustre to it, with a dry hand, feel and a slight 'crispness' to the touch. It is filled with Clo® Insulation, a British manufacturer of recycled insulation.
