There is an exciting update to announce at Levi’s and The Woolmark Company:
Together with The Woolmark Company, the California denim brand enters a collaboration round and launches new silhouette among the denim brand’s boots, the Torsten Quilted.
Because both brands are connected by more than just innovative and individual design approaches – sustainability and performance are important cornerstones of these two global companies. So there is no doubt that Levi’s has chosen Australian merino wool as the lining for the Torsten Quilted Boot. For your information: Merino wool is a 100% natural, renewable, biodegradable and recyclable fiber whose durability guarantees high performance for the quality product. “We are excited to be working in partnership with The Woolmark Company utilizing one of nature’s most functional materials – Merino Wool. Both high performance and sustainable providing the perfect combination to keep you weather ready this Winter season” says Lee Anderson, Levi’s Merch Footwear.
“The inclusion of Merino wool in Levi’s® boot not only highlights the versatility of the original performance fibre, but also shines a spotlight on the sustainable nature of the fibre, pursuing the company’s mission to inform and promote wool as the original eco and recyclable fibre ” says The Woolmark Company Regional Manager Europe, C&E Francesco Magri. “Merino wool is more and more present in the world of the younger generations, who cares not only about urban performances but also about durable and environmentally friendly materials”
So what is there more to say? The casual boot with a green soul has a utilitarian design that’s ideal for both the city and great outdoors, thanks to the robust structure that ensures performance, protection and comfort. The upper is constructed from leather, coming from factories certified by the Leather Working Group, combined with an insert in eco-cordura quilted effect, created with recovered waste resources that’s both tear resistant and long- lasting. The inner lining is made from Woolmark certified wool felt, while the new grippy sole is made of 20% recycled contents. The boot’s lacing are also made from recycled materials and a color palette of mustard, dark green and black evokes woodland and autumnal tones.
