Didriksons - Waterproof Mittens for babies - Biggles - Burnt Glow
The Biggles Mittens for kids by Didriksons are completely windproof and waterproof, keeping hands warm and dry in any weather. The long glove length prevents water and snow from getting in. Around the wrist is an elasticated band and thanks to the long zipper they are much easier to get on and off.
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.
