MARINELA means sailor in Basque.
The original kaikus were worn by Basque sailors and fishermen and the one we inherited was also 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.
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.
