The garments are timeless and iconic, individual and with a personalised touch. Suede can be sensitive to wet weather and is generally worn only in spring and summer. The Coloniaire collections are designed for year-round use and for some selected garments and accessories we have adapted a layer of paraffin wax to protect the suede, and we have also oil impregnated our leather products to make the garments withstand harsh climates and tough adventures.
The Coloniaire concept is utilitarian. To this end, we offer finished garments in a variety of embodiments such as unwaxed or waxed finish, unconstructed garments for high summer season or garments with warmer flannel linings to suit even the cold fall and winter season. We have even quilted and padded some of our fall/winter garments to make it possible to wear suede also during the cold Nordic seasons.
