Lainoa means cloud in Basque.
Here in the Basque Country clouds are grey and not white, at least very often. So in their name we publish our limited edition Lainoa, inside our Kaiku collection, made with natural fabric 90% wool and 10% cashmere. As always, our coats are hand crafted by local artisans in the Basque Country.
Kaiku is the coat traditionally worn by the Basque fishermen or arrantzales. It was made by a tight wool fabric, perfect for the heavy rains and humid wind they have to deal with on the sea.
We have maintained the simplicity of its shape and the main features of the kaiku, such as the big pockets, heart-shaped elbow patch or the shoulder stripes to keep the txapela.
