Halti’s Urban Parka Made Using SPINNOVA® Fiber Now In Stores

HELSINKI — April 4, 2023 — Finland-based outdoor clothing and equipment brand Halti and manufacturer of sustainable textile fiber Spinnova have released the Cyclus unisex parka in stores. The parka is part of the Kallio® by Halti collection, which includes technical and timeless styles for the urban environment. The parka will be available as a limited batch April 4, and is designed in Finland and manufactured in Estonia.

The Cyclus unisex parka is a modern tribute to Halti’s roots in the world of outdoor activities and natural fibers. These roots inspire the colors, style, and materials of the parka jacket. The parka is made from environmentally friendly SPINNOVA fiber and cotton and dyed using Imogo’s sustainable technology from Sweden. Very little water and no harmful chemicals are used in the production of SPINNOVA fiber. The fiber is also entirely biodegradable and recyclable. Sustainability and easy repair are considered in every detail in the design as well as the recyclability of materials. The parka is a unisex model and its market suggested retail price is 399 euros.

“This has been a learning process in the use of new fibers and responsible dyeing technology in textile production. A timeless parka suitable for everyday wear was selected as our first joint product with Spinnova,” said Aki Kuusilehto, CEO of Halti.

“In the design, I wanted to go back to Halti’s roots — not as a replica but as a modern urban tribute. The starting points for the design were timelessness, technical functionality, and respect for nature. These criteria led us to choose SPINNOVA fiber as the main material. The parka withstands various weather conditions, can be easily repaired, and its materials can be recycled at the end of its lifecycle,” explained Halti’s designer Hanna Koivula.
