Ventile L24 is a high grade cotton fabric which is spun, twisted, woven and dyed/finished in Switzerland following the highest quality standards. The yarns are made of purely extra long staple fibres (only 2% of world crop). These twisted yarns are being woven in such a tight manner that the finished fabric withstands harsh weather conditions (rain showers and strong winds. The natural cotton fibre enables a wearing comfort (breathability), which can never be reached with synthetic materials. Soft handle and natural esthetical look are other plus factors of this fabric.

Its well over ten years ago that I started to investigate the idea of evolving the classic British workwear jacket & over a few seasons from around 2001-2007 6876 played with the composition,detailing and fabrication.
We moved from 100% natural fibres,garment dyes and eventually to proofed cotton before the genre subsided until there was a version in our Cashca collaboration more recently.
Still I felt there was something else that I wanted to achieve which was a summer version that was very lightweight, yet robust and with good technical capabilities. This all came together when I sourced a fabric from a regular and progressive supplier ;FOV in Sweden well known for supplying many of the premium technical brands.
