Fun fact; Brixtol started in a small kitchen in Stockholm, Sweden in 2011 by two friends Gustav and Emil who wanted to break traditions and make progressive clothes. The brand has since grown into a solid sustainable brand. The jackets are made of recycled wool and polyester. The polyester is made from recycled PET bottles and used wool is collected from used garments and production waste. The collected wool is then shredded into individual fibers and spun into new yarn. In this way they can save energy, water and decrease chemical pollution by minimizing the production of wool. Fashionably & sustainable.
