Geared up for the outdoors

The new collection includes Pure Green collection, Vibrant Colour Collection and Wet Wick series. All the clothes offer the much-needed comfort that is integral to intense outdoor sports. “We have a set of designers who keep working on new trends and focus on the functionality of each of these. With every new collection, we like to upgrade our work,” explains Harkirat Singh, MD, Woodland India Pvt Ltd. “We want to make outdoor-friendly collection and more importantly, people should be comfortable wearing our clothes especially when they are out in high temperatures,” he adds.

The Pure Green T-Shirt collection is about recycled and processed polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles that minimise the damage towards environment. “These plastic bottles don’t disintegrate so they are the worst pollutants of the environment. We reuse them and create eco-friendly products using the best of technology,” he adds. The Pure Green shoes (recycle) process provides a very high quality rubber which would otherwise be an industrial waste. The soles consist of certain percentage of used automobile tyres.

In the high temperatures of summer, one tends to perspire easily. The Wet Wick collection ensures that one is comfortable outdoors as it has the capacity to control odour and is made up of high-tech continuous filament yarn that helps pull out sweat into a larger space. This makes the fabric more breathable. “So when you wear this collection, you don’t sweat or feel lethargic,” says Harkirat.

The Vibrant Colour collection offers T-shirts in vibrant shades that are inspired by nature, including both cool and warm hues. The colours that serve as the foundation of the summer palette are a combination of loud and subtle. “The T-shirts are in bright colours and not boring ones,” he says.

Woodland is best known for its shoes and as far as the shoes are concerned, it never leaves a stone unturned to make sure that they are the best. The same goes for the latest collection too. “Our shoes are breathable, eco-friendly and waterproof. They have a two-way membrane so that water doesn’t go in in the case of outdoor activities and moisture comes out when you sweat,” he says.
