Stripes PANTS-size XS
The Story of Stripes Gear starts in New Zealand, a land of stunning beauty, with green hillsides, snowy peaks, and rainy wet winters, so similar to BC. It might seem ironic that premium quality polypropylene base layers come from the same country farmed for its merino wool, but the kiwis do know how to stay warm! Stripes is an inter-ocean partnership between a family business in New Zealand that started it all, and our family in Canada.
The interesting thing about Stripes is the fabric is 100% pure polypropolene. This means the colour is part of the fiber itself, and so it doesn’t require dyes with heavy metals which can negatively impact our environments. The high quality of the fabric, design and workmanship are apparent in the garment’s performance and durability.
