WARMTH FROM THE INSIDE OUT
We take a long-term mind-set to everything we do when we make clothes. Our clothes should be timeless, functional and of the highest quality – so as to avoid wastefulness. A long-term mind-set creates sustainability and Woolpower always keeps sustainability in focus, both before during and after a Woolpower garment has been produced.
We manufacture warm woollen undergarments and socks from the yarn to the finished product. When you wear our clothes, you can be confident that they’ve been made with responsibility towards our surrounding nature and the work environment of the people who work for Woolpower. Our choice to keep all manufacturing in Östersund reduces the number of links to control in the supply chain. There is a strong sense of values and significant engagement amongst our employees. The seamstresses quality mark the garments they sew by stitching their own name tags inside them. This creates a sense of pride and responsibility for everybody.
Woolpower has existed in Östersund since it started in 1969. We know from our own vast experience what it takes to avoid getting cold.
WE WILL GENERATE WARMTH FOR 100 YEARS
This is Woolpower’s vision. This of course means that we must continue to be the best at making warm clothes. Undergarments and thicker mid-layer garments that withstand extreme weather conditions, sudden changes in weather and varied levels of activity. But our vision also says that we have to be a responsible company, one that cares about people, animals and nature. This in itself shows that we have a long-term perspective and the word sustainability is important for us. Just like us, our clothes should last a long time, and that means we are very focused on the environment and take our responsibility seriously.
We have sewn all our garments here in Östersund ever since our factory started operations in 1972. That’s exactly how we want it to be. Having our own factory in Östersund means we can manage our impact on the environment far better. Woolpower is environmentally certified and has taken an even greater step towards sustainability during recent years. Waste material from our production process becomes our super popular felt inner soles nowadays. And we’ve also started to manufacture Woolpower Slipper in the same comfortable material.
You could say that warmth has a double meaning for us. We produce warm woollen products and we work to be a company that takes good care of employees, partners, animals and nature.
