Cagoule Fleece was started in 1993 in Portland, Oregon, more specifically on the floor of founder Peter Julber's living room. They had only four things going for them: a big, scary pair of scissors, a puny home sewing machine, a roll of fleece the size of a VW Beetle, and some seemingly impossible ideas about making outdoor accessories that were perfect from all perspectives.
Today, they're still a really small company and everything they make is still created from superbly soft fleece itself made from post-consumer recycled materials. At Cagoule, they recycle absolutely everything they can and run the entire show with waste reduction firmly in mind. Portand's cool, wet climate is the perfect proving ground for their products, and they personally test everything they make on nearby trails of the biking, hiking, skiing, and snowboarding kind. In short, they love what they do. And they're quite sure that once you get your hands on some Cagoule stuff you'll love what they do, too.
Info on materials, from the Cagoule website:
If we've learned one thing in the last few years (aside from the fact that one should never use the shop's comfy chair as a pin cushion), it's that not all fleece is created equal. That's the sort of wisdom you acquire when your chosen vocation involves testing every kind imaginable. And so it is that after enough study to qualify for a Ph.D. in Fleeceology, we've identified the very best kind of fleece available.
All Cagoule products, with the exception of the Stockholm Gloves, are made in Oregon. Within Oregon, about half of the items are produced in-house, and the rest are made in Salem, Oregon.
