The Joutsen FabPatch™ patch for down coats has been well-received by customers

One of the forerunners in innovative circular economy of textile industry is Joutsen Finland. The company has been adding custom made textile repair patches to their business for a couple of years:

“The light down coats are ideal for various winter activities as they are light, breathable and comfortable to move in. Joutsen down coats are also durable and long-lasting. However, an accident can happen to your go-to coat. Luckily, Joutsen down coats are designed to be repaired, and we offer a repair service for all Joutsen down products in Finland.

A few years ago, we collaborated with FabPatch Ltd, a Finnish company, to develop an easy and discreet solution for repairing small holes and wear from our down coat fabric. This led to the creation of the Joutsen FabPatch™ patch for down coats.

The Joutsen FabPatch™ patch for down coats has been well-received by our customers as it extends the service life of their coats. As a result, we have now introduced a patch package made of our light down coat fabric. Our customers have also learned to keep FabPatch™ patches ready in case of any damage as they can conveniently patch not only Joutsen coats but also many other things.”

Joutsen is one of the forerunning brands offering their customers custom made FabPatch™ products. - Find out about the other brand collaborations.
