“No Gore-Tex. No velcro. No mass production. And no straps or strings dangling from every seam. Meet the Arholma – the last raincoat you will ever need.
Using the the finest craftsmanship, materials and details, the Arholma is a state of the art version of the traditional raincoat worn by generations of Swedish fishermen (and the occasional genius film director). It is hand sewn at our factory in Borås by one of our skilled seamstresses. To meet our high standards and to guarantee that every coat is 100% wind and water proof, every single seam is carefully sealed with tape. Finally, each coat is individually controlled, numbered and signed by the seamstress who has sewn it.
The Arholma Vit has the original dusty white nuance, with silver buttons and a concrete grey lining in the very best cotton. It has become really popular amongst both women and men and many say it looks even better after it has been used a couple of months without washing – the patina really makes this coat to a nice companion when it gets dark and dreary.”
