The original “Elephant Skin” fabric dates back to the Industrial Revolution in the late 19th century. Manual laborers such as welders, carpenters and mechanics favored the strong and durable, yet comfortable “Elephant Skin”. As back then, our “Elephant Skin” is made in Germany to the former standards and with the same formula, which has not changed over one century. Only by choosing the original German fabric we are able to use the basic ingredient for the most authentic traditional workwear series available. This way we can assure that our “Elephant Skin” garments are made for the strongest wear and will pass the hardest tests! The name “Elephant Skin” was chosen due to the fact, that although consisting of 100% organic cotton the fabric shows the same characteristics as real leather.
