Introducing the New Material : 01

We are very happy this year, on Pickpocket® because we’re adding new materials to the models and also creating new ones.

We intend to recover the use of the strong fabric called Lona/Canvas. A traditional form of production in the Iberian Peninsula. Using raw threads with strong twist, Lona is a very resistant fabric that can be used continuously. Our Lona is made upon order in a Portuguese weaver, specifically built for our products. 

We believe Lona contains all the characteristics, that we search for our models: Made on looms, tough and soft, it is quite resistant in everyday outdoor use. Either combined with our leathers, or plain and simple only reinforced by our technique, the models never loose the nobility of their design.

More news soon…
