Vinylon F is the original Kanken material and has proven it's durability over the decades. In addition to its longevity Vinylon F is water resistant without using any PFC based water repellents. Even though it is a synthetic fibre it acts much like a natural fiber and swells up when it gets damp. This tightens the weave and provides water resistance.
A part of the sales of this products goes to Fjallravens Arctic Fox Initiative which funds diverse environmental projects from protecting the Arctic fox to beach clean-ups in the UK.
At Fjallraven no decision is taken lightly. When considering a material Fjallraven will evaluate its efficiency, functional qualities, chemical composition and the amount they’ll need before making a choice. Fjallraven use a Preferred Materials And Fibres List that grades materials in terms of their impact on the environment. And this list is constantly updated, reflecting new research and new materials. In 2012 Fjallraven decided to switch to fluorocarbon-free impregnation throughout its full product range.
G-1000 is Fjallraven’s cornerstone material, made from recycled polyester and organic cotton. Fjallraven use it in everything from backpacks to jackets and trousers. It’s a densely woven fabric made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton and, by using Greenland Wax, it’s adaptable to a whole variety of different climactic conditions. So, with the right care this durable fabric will last for ages and join you on all kinds of adventures. The longer a garment lasts the more sustainable it becomes.
In 2019, Fjallraven founded the Arctic Fox Initiative; a collaboration between Fjällräven and its customers. Funded through the purchase of select Fjällräven products, the Arctic Fox Initiative awards several non-profit organisations with grants each year. The organisations chosen must have the goal of protecting our environment or inspiring people to spend time in nature.
