Kaiku MARINELA eskoziarra urdina
MARINELA means sailor in Basque.
The original kaikus were worn by Basque sailors and fishermen and the one we inherited was alsi marine blue colour, so we could not forget them in our Kaiku collection and we published this MARINELA edition. They are made with natural fabric 100% merino wool made in Spain. As always, our coats are hand crafted by local artisans in the Basque Country.
MetaKultura special edition
Meta! was the name of the crowdfunding campaign with which we were able to produce these 102 kaikus (34 in each color) with the help of the local government from Gipuzkoa and lots of people that believed in our project before they could even touch it.
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.
