With spring in full swing, and summer fast approaching, it's a good idea to style your mid-season in a cloth that performs whatever the conditions. Scabal is proud to introduce our new Kapok collection, 19 fabrics that perfectly combine function with finesse.
To create this collection, Scabal has invented a whole new way to spin the “silk-cotton” threads that are produced by the mighty Kapok tree. These threads are used to float seeds upon the breeze, and provide buoyancy to its fruit, which is why you will find the tree across oceans, from Africa to South America and the Caribbean.
Available in a variety of shades, perfect for both spring and summer, the blend of cotton with these silky fibres has given the cloth a pleasing feel against the skin, and a solid texture. Each of these colourful cloths captures the globetrotting spirit of this brilliant botanical, and is the ideal material for the international lifestyle of the modern man.
With a weight of 300g, alongside a Bedford cord that comes in at 270g, it is ideal for jacket for jackets, trousers, and even a full suit. The Kapok collection also offers a more formal drape than other modern cotton based cloths, yet does not sacrifice an ounce of comfort to achieve this.
