IN GENERAL – PAY ATTENTION TO THIS

ON AND OFF During a season the outerwear is pulled on and off countless times and therefor it is important to you and the little ones that the outerwear is easy to pull on and off. This also goes for the bigger children who need to get the jacket or snowsuit on in a hurry by themselves to enter the school yard or playground at the day care. MINI A TURE outerwear of course reflects this aspect.

 

SAFETY Safety is paramount when we design our outerwear, therefore there are no long strings and hoods are detachable with snap buttons, as they will fall off if the child is stocked. In winter especially it becomes dark early and it is important that the children are visible when being outdoors. There are many different reflectors, at MINI A TURE we use 70 lux reflectors, which are visible at more than 300 meters’ distance. Our logo labels on the back and side are reflectors. Jackets and snowsuits have the MINI A TURE signature star reflector in one of the front pockets.

 

WATERPROOF It is important that outerwear for the winter in particular is waterproof. Waterproof (WP) is indicated by water pressure. WP 10.000 mm means that the garment can withstand incredibly hard water pressure. All winter jackets, snowsuits and snow pants from this season are with WP 10.000 mm, which is announce to be the best. After five washed WP Is guaranteed WP 8.000 mm (compared to the WP 5.000 is enough to keep the child dry). Our summer/spring/autumn outerwear have WP 8.000 mm.

 

WATERPROOF / TAPED SEAMS It is not enough that the garment is waterproof the seams need to be waterproof as well. Taped seams mean that at the back of a seam a waterproof tape is attached, which prevents water from penetrating. All technical outerwear from MINI A TURE have taped seams and even particularly soft tapes which ensure that this in specific is not worn out.

 

BREATHABLE When children are romping around on the playground they often get very warm and this body heat needs to be transported so the child will not be cold. Breathability is measured by amount of grams of water penetrating a square meter of fabric within 24 hours (mvp or g/m2/24h). The composition and treatment of MINI A TURE outerwear makes it very breathable and comfortable to wear. The technical outerwear is 8.000 mvp breathable.

 

ABRASION At MINI A TURE we design outerwear with the philosophy the outerwear must last season after season. Our outerwear is tested by the martindale method with a high score result more than 50.000 rubs and therefor lasts for hours of outdoor playing.

 

FUR Most of our winter jackets and snowsuits come with and without fur, which can be easily removed with zip closure. All fur comes from Finnish raccoon, shot in nature only to cull the population of this species as it can continue to live in harmony with other species in the area. Therefor they are not shot for us to use their fur this is called Wildlife Preservation Certification. We can track every single used fur. It is a very important factor for MINI A TURE maintaining a global environment treating animals ethically and humanely. MINI A TURE has NAFA certificate (Wildlife certification on fur).

 

LINING & PADDING For the winter collection we use double cut anti-pilling polar fleece at the body part, which is a very soft and durable fabric with heat insulation. Snow pants and sleeves have quilted 210T lining, a very durable polyester lining. To keep the child warm the outerwear for the winter has thermolite padding, a light material with high thermal insulation, perspiration and breathable. Our summer/spring/autumn outerwear has 210T lining.

 

DOWN is a very soft and light natural material. Our down consist of 80% down and 20% small feathers. The more down the better insulation. We produce down jackets for both summer and winter, in which we use extra down to make it extra warm. The outer is feather proof, as the feathers will not peep out.

 

NO HARMFUL ADDITIVES, MINI A TURE outerwear contain NO harmful additives nor perfluorinated substances. Our technical outerwear has an inner coating, which makes the material water- and windproof, and breathable at the same time. The outer has a unique heating treatment, which makes the material dirt-repelling.
