Organic cotton sustainable raincoats
If you haven’t seen our new organic cotton raincoats yet, where have you been?! We’re SO excited to finally launch the first ever Nomads raincoats. After lots of design research and material testing, the final coat is made from a supersoft organic cotton which has been treated with a water resistant coating that does not contain plastic – which is great for the environment and also means that the cotton retains it’s soft feel. The lining of the coats is made from viscose – which as you know (because we just can’t help telling you ALL the time), is made from sustainably sourced wood pulp. This means that we can proudly state that the finished organic cotton raincoats are made from 90% biodegradable materials.
We put the raincoats to the test with 3 of our favourite bloggers, and this is what they had to say:
Sarah Barrett – Checkered Photography, wears the Organic Cotton Raincoat in Fir
‘When it comes to comfort this organic raincoat is perfect for big adventures in the rain! I went out in the pouring Cornish rain to walk my dog and the coat was perfect, keeping me warm enough to stay out longer. I came back feeling nice and dry to then sit and enjoy a hot chocolate! The colour and print is beautiful, not only being functional but it also looks good and goes well with winter boots.’
Lynne – Champagne and Blush, wears the Biscay Print Organic Cotton Raincoat
Having a comfortable yet roomy raincoat to throw on over whatever I’m wearing is paramount for me and my Nomads raincoat has been keeping me dry and warm this week whilst out on errands or on the school run. It’s also roomy enough to pop on over a chunky knit! I opted for the Biscay print which I have found to be very versatile in terms of styling with other colours but it also offers that pop of colour on dreary days.
The Nomads organic waterproof coat is stylish, comfortable, roomy, fit for purpose and surprisingly affordable considering its quality, sustainability and the fact it’s made with organic cotton. I must say I’m very impressed with the jacket overall and I’m looking forward to it keeping me warm and dry over the next few months.
Pia Grace wears the Organic Cotton Raincoat in Saffron
The organic cotton raincoat is such a joy to wear, light yet warm with the prettiest lining and a hood which is just the right size! The fact it’s made from organic cotton and has a natural water resistant coating without the use of plastic in the process is a huge tick for me. Natural fibres mean it’s comfortable to wear and the colour, Saffron, is just the most perfect Autumn colour. Fair trade and sustainable can be fashionable too, and I know I’ll be wearing this gorgeous coat for years !
So, there really is no reason not to look stylish in the rain this season!
