Together with experts, we have started the ReWoolution: further developing the classic loden fabric into our DUCKS Loden. Unlike conventional merino wool, our DUCKS Wool in green is very elaborately processed from 100% Bavarian sheep and then weatherproofed in a special process. 100% natural.
Loden is a particularly light fabric that is pleasant to wear on the skin and gives our shoes an optimal fit. Wool allows the feet to breathe particularly well. Our shoes are therefore breathable, temperature-balancing and prevent unnecessary sweating. The elaborate processing of the virgin wool, fulling, not only makes the loden more resistant and warmer, but also water-repellent and even dirt-resistant.
Loden is naturally protected by lanolin and is therefore extremely easy to care for. Lanolin protects the wool fiber from rain, dirt and odors. Additional impregnation is not necessary for your handmade shoes, but it doesn't do any harm either. We recommend that you impregnate your shoes, especially if you have a material combination of loden and leather. Regular airing and brushing with a natural hair brush also preserves the quality of the fabric very well.
For additional cleaning, you can moisten the material with a little vinegar and then brush it out with a clothes or shoe brush. Edges and stains can be removed with a damp cloth and a little curd soap.
Modern design meets traditional material.
Our MOD. 1 sneaker comes with loden, but is otherwise anything but traditional. It simply combines one of the best materials with stylish design. For city and country, for morning, noon, night. At the office, at the café, at the concert. Your distinctive style can be found in your outfit. Our MOD. 1 fits in. Always.
