ABOUT TROUSERS FABRICS SHOP NEWS LAB CONTACT
INDNAT stands for design, pattern drafting, garment construction and sale of trousers, jeans and shorts. All garments are carefully crafted, entirely by hand_* and sewn one piece at a time or in limited production series.
Good quality and durability of the garments are the standard by which i work, one that i continously try to improve. Important criteria for the designs are their use and the production method.
There is a main role in the design inspiration and that is in a big part taken by the curiosity towards clothing for craftsmen, traditional garments up to men's suits. Its shapes, the functional details, the process methods used, the materials, the traditional tailoring techniques and even sometimes the old stories that go with these are the input translated into a refined form. In combination with new ideas on detail and limited only by simplicity, these are the aspiration of craftsmanship that i hold in honor.
Silent sports like climbing, cylcing, surfing ... the ocean and the mountains, ... the interest in different handcrafts ... a down to earth mentality and so much more, most of all that what i can not explain with words are ingredients_* for the design, fine-tuning and the spirit of the products.
All INDNAT trousers are made with carefully selected premium organic cottons, raw denims, loden, linen, hemp and suit fabrics. The excellent suit fabrics are made in Sabadell (Barcelona) & Huddersfield, Yorkshire (England). The particular Loden Tyroles is manufactured in the mountains of Austria with pure love and centuries of skills.
Mailorder / Selling
All trousers styles can be ordered 'Ready to Wear' or 'Made to Measure'. For 'Made to Measure' orders the - INDNAT pattern base - is customized with your personal measurements. Customers have it own personal pattern and it is possible to order any type of trousers on basis of your personalized pattern, as well as with modifications.
On request I send out the trousers - catalogue with all details, so you can order by E-Mail. If you are in Girona please make an appointment and come down to the workshop. About two times a year I am "on tour" in Germany and offer a "Custom Fitting" with the possibility to get your personal fitting.
The web page & catalogue provides you with informations about the materials and its origins. It is not allowed to me to show certifications of textile-standards. This is financially not possible for small series. My person stands for the social standard during the production of all garments, all trousers are completely made by myself. However, I offer transparency to every customer so far as possible, in every area, please simply ask for.
RESPECT THE WATERS
This statement calls for responsibility towards nature, the resources at our disposal, and our dependence upon them. The understanding of this should always be the underlying foundation to my inspiration and professional approach, for all steps and decisions to come.
