The Helle by Didriksons is a lightly padded parka for everyday use in a soft and flexible fabric. It has a regular fit and a figure-shaped silhouette. Fully wind and waterproof with taped seams and made from breathable fabric. It has a fixed hood and a high collar to protect against cold winds. Two front pockets and two inside pockets with zips. The hem, hood and cuffs can all be adjusted as needed. The lining has been dyed using a solution dyeing technique. This technique reduces water, energy and chemical consumption during production. PFC-free water-repellent finish.
Didriksons started in 1913 in Grundsund, Sweden. The Didriksons company started making waterproof jackets for fishermen that would protect them from the cold, wet and rough conditions on Swedish waters. At the time, more fishermen died from hypothermia than from drowning. The very first coats were nothing more than pieces of fabric that were coated several times with layers of (linseed) oil using a brush. After this the 'oilskins' were hung out to dry. When these had dried sufficiently the fishermen could wear them in the cold and wetness on the water. The fishermen spontaneously stayed dry and warm and soon the demand for these early Didriksons 'raincoats' increased rapidly.
