Inspired by mid 30s Safari jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Safari” Desert Ventile® Eco Recycled Jacket represents an authentic garment made of 100% Cotton Ventile® Eco Recycled, the Highest Performance Cotton since 1943.
The Ventile® Eco Recycled is the first High-Performance Fabric made entirely from Recycled Cotton. This pioneering, award-winning fabric has been designed to achieve the best balance of performance, comfort, and sustainability. Using technological advances, Ventile® Eco Recycled draws inspiration from Ventile’s unsurpassed performance characteristics. The all-weather fabric is constructed so that it breathes naturally and far more effectively than other all-weather fabrics. The result is a high-performance fabric that is as reliable as it is sustainable.
Ventile® was created to save the lives of Air Force personnel flying over the Atlantic in wartime England. Pilots needed a garment that was cool and comfortable in the cockpit, but warm and impenetrable if it came into contact with water. With nothing that offered this functionality on the market, a team of dedicated scientists pioneered a radical solution at the Shirley Institute in Manchester and, after several months of testing, Ventile® was born.
The unique weatherproof qualities of the fabric ensured that it was also widely championed by outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers alike. Ventile® was used in the first summit of Everest in 1953 and by Sir Ranulph Fiennes when he crossed the Arctic from 1979 – 1982.
As the name suggest, the “Safari” jacket was created for use in the African bush, developed as a practical and lightweight solution for regiments fighting in the South African heat of the Boer War.
Unlined construction for the best comfort and breathable feeling. Featuring a Sartorial Central Gusset on the back to enhance movement and comfort, and four roomy “Safari” tailoring Pockets specifically made for Travels on the Road.
