LAND VAN HERKOMST: DENEMARKEN
Kronstadt goes back 20 years to a time when founder Thomas Olesen had spotted a gap in the scandinavian fashion scene.
The bohemian dane created a collection of shirts with wide collars, broad cuffs and cool materials. The respons was overwhelming and an upcoming brand was born. After a few years Kronstadt was known for their “funky” shirts with unique and outstanding designs.
The name comes from the Russian town famous for its uprising against the Bolsheviks in 1920’s and the punk band Kronstadt Uprising.
At the beginning of the new millenium Thomas Olesen changed his focus from funky shirts to good fits, discrete detail and classic collars, all the while keeping quality at top.
Kronstadt also expanded its line of clothes to include tees, pants, jackets, knits and more. Being acutely aware of the impact the fashion industry has on the environment, Thomas Olesen very early on began using recycled cotton in the manufacturing process.
The positive respons from the public took the brand to the next level from the streets of Copenhagen to an international success.
Today Kronstadt is sold across the globe and is widely known for its sustainability, genuine look, nice fits and good quality.
Among our range of sustainable clothing you will find t-shirts, sweatshirts, pants, a wide array of knitwear and even jackets produced with recycled cotton.
You can recognize our recycled cotton program by the special hang tag.
