About this project
Woop!Wear has taken alpaca's lightweight warmth and paired it with prime British Millerain waxed cotton to create a refined, fully lined, Waxed Cotton Field Coat.
- Exterior is water repellent British Millerain 8 oz waxed cotton
- Interior is fully lined with a 100% baby alpaca plaid wool pattern
- Hood is fully lined and can be zipped off
- Side entry hand warming pockets are fully lined
- Four cargo pockets
- Interior zipper pocket
- Two button adjustable cuff
What really makes this coat stand out is the superior warmth provided by the alpaca lining in combination with the waxed cotton outer shell. The rugged styling allows functional versatility, either in the field or downtown.
These coats are made to last and the classic waxed cotton only looks better with wear.
The alpaca fabric for these coats will be sourced from one of our trusted Peruvian suppliers. The exterior will be made from the long established British Millerain's waxed cotton fabric, and the final garments will be sewn at a U.S. sewing facility.
We are offering the coat in a dark olive green color with a red/white/black plaid pattern for the interior lining.
For the Gentlemen:
The men's coat offers lots of storage space with four exterior cargo pockets. The lower pockets have both a top entry and fully lined side entry pocket for warm hands.
For the Ladies:
We've tailored the women's coat with princess seams in the back for a flattering, streamlined fit.
Additional details for both the ladies and gentlemen's versions:
If we reach a stretch goal of $70,00 we can offer the coat in the above Dark Brown color.
Risks and challenges
Meeting deadlines: While we have been in business for a few years and are familiar with our supply chain and production process, we will be working with a new, reputable, U.S based manufacturer for the sewing of this project as well as a new supplier for the waxed cotton fabric. Though we are working with reputable, established companies, they are new relationships for us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
