As with all classic staples, fit & patterns are developed with our in-house atelier.
With a keen eye for quality, our master craftsmen start with sourcing and selecting the finest quality fabrics.
To ensure consistency, each dye-lot is tested for shrinkage, colour fastness and colour dye-lot. Only the finest are then stocked in our highly curated inventory of premium fleece selections.
We do not rely on the standard practice of simply compacting knitted fabrics, claiming "pre-shrunk". Instead, we fabric wash each dye-lot of fabric, starting off by un-rolling each roll.
We then wash and dry the fleece in our in-house laundry facilities to ensure shrinkage occurs at the manufacturing level.
This revolutionary, labour and resource intensive process minimizes our shrinkage to 3 - 5%*.
*Retail average is 8 - 10%. Promotional market averages from 10 - 20%.
Fabric is then re-rolled before it goes to the Cutting Room.
Before cutting, we lay-out fabric, allowing just enough rest time to un-relax to minimize any pattern distortion.
Each handcrafted Redwood Classics sweatshirt is constructed with the utmost care and attention to detail.
Our sweatshirts are constructed with highly specialized four-needle flatlock stitching, resulting in added comfort, better fit and durability.
Each sweatshirt is inspected one at a time for construction quality, colour standards. At this point, we trim any loose threads.
Each garment is given a final, all-over review before it is honoured with our Redwood Classics, Proudly Made in Canada stamp of approval.
