I was able during this last winter to put some extra work on my Loden cloth, a thrilling material. It is still impossible to find a technical fabric that can be compared to it. That is why it is for me so rewarding to make it become trousers.
Praise song on the Loden Cloth:

INDNAT® SELECTED AMBIENT WORKS
Our hardy knitted jumper made from organic sheep wool got a lot interest and is nearly sold out. We are actually working on the new production with our knitter in Germany. As from autumn 2013 you will be able to see it, feel it, touch it and buy it at “Harvest” in München and “Pfeil&Piefke” in Berlin. Also “on tour” as well as in Eva´s online shop.
Work in progress:
A knitted slipover as a warm layer with functional details - made from organic sheep wool!

Short Cuts 2.013
In collaboration with Paul Lentzsch and his label “Paull”, founded in Munich, we develop a pair of organic cotton shorts for this summer. The “INDNAT x Paull Short”.
Think tank (Materials)
Since the beginning of INDNAT it has always been a very important subject to look for and choose great quality materials from organic cultivated cotton. I impatiently expect by the end of next year to announce that INDNAT will not be using conventional grown cotton fabrics anymore. You can as well support this idea by choosing an Organic Cotton fabric when buying your trousers at INDNAT.
Soon I can offer a new pocket lining made from organic cotton for all trousers styles! A collective order with a friendly label in Munich makes it possible.
Frequently I am asked for trousers made from hemp fabric. An interesting material with an exciting history. Finally I found a full linen thread-Denim from pure hemp. Let´s try it.
I am not allowed to show certificates of the organic materials. Financially this is very difficult. A bewildering subject, above all for the end consumer. However, I offer my customer with interest transparency, as far as it is possible to me, please simply ask for.
Buy long-lasting clothing and wear them out!
A big help from Berlin; the team of Lebenskleidung:
A thread-coloured twill with pattern has already arrived and from the middle of March I expect a great twill in Black, Navyblue and Brown-grey. Both with and by Lebenskleidung - Organic Rules!
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.

A small treasure
One of the last textile mills near Barcelona has closed his factory. Situated in “Sabadell”, a former stronghold for woollen clothing. I had decided to buy the whole last piece from “our” great suit cloth.
Like a small treasures - the great woolen cloth waits now for its “bearers”.

After 4 years of boatbuilding - Epoxy resin leaves the trousers stand alone.
