The apparel industry produces way too much stuff which we don’t even need. If that's not bad enough, the industry still tends to use toxic and harmful materials. As Open Wear, we don’t want to contribute to that. Of course, the best way to reduce would be if we would not produce anything at all. But, since we are passionate powder riders ourselves, we can't escape from the proper gear to ride in on powder days.
When I’ll be old, I want to look back at my life, being able to honestly say that I have tried everything to do good. Where other industries have seen groundbreaking developments on mechanisation and robotization of production, the apparel industry still needs human hands to put garments together.
The number one question we received over the last year was: “When will you bring pants?” Good news! That day has come. Next Tuesday, we’ll be launching pants matching to your jacket.Best of all: they fit both the new jackets as well as the once from last year. And ladies, we’ve got your back as well. We also designed a pair of women's pants.
After one year of research, development and testing we are almost ready to launch our new line of products. Next week, Tuesday, June 27th we’ll finally start a new Kickstarter campaign to launch the Open One Series.
It’s been already several months since we’ve delivered all The Open Ones. In the weeks after we got overwhelmed by the amount of feedback we received. We are glad to present you the outcomes further down this update.
An amazing once in a lifetime opportunity or a stupid idea? We ignored the latter and instead we were going on "an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity". So we traveled to Lebanon to go splitboarding, to get to know and explore the culture and of course to experience something new to us
t's been almost 2 months now since we've been delivering The Open One. So, we thought it was time for a little video that explains every feature on the jacket. Well, at least that's what we planned. Unfortunately, co-founder Martijn felt the pressure of shooting a quick video before sunset and forgot to mention two key features of the jacket. To make sure all features are in, we've added them textually to the video.
