Moleskin – It’s not made from moles
No moles were harmed during the making of our trousers – moleskin doesn’t COME from moles, it just feels like a moles skin.
Moleskin has been used in trouser making for many years, and is popular for hunting, building work, countryside use due to it’s ability to shrug off damage, keep clean, be “quiet” in use, as well as being breathable, and comfortable even when wet.
It’s is a tough heavy fabric made from densely woven cotton, initially looped, then sheared which creates a short soft pile on the upper side. It looks and feels a bit like chammy and some sorts of velvet, but is actually far tougher than either
It’s dense nature makes it ideal for tough working garments, but because it’s cotton, it’s very breathable. It can be washed in a normal household machine, but of course, being cotton, it shouldn’t be boiled as that would make it shrink. We recommend washing at 30deg which is good for your trousers and the environment.
All our jeans are 100% vegan, including the synthetic patch and Corozo nut buttons.
