The Byrd House Project - Exhibition by Woolrich

In the 1930s Admiral E.
Richard Byrd developed the fabric, which, due to the density of its structure alone, is water-repellent and windproof. He had it patented as the first American cotton fabric and it was successfully used during the Byrd Antarctica expedition in the year 1939.

While researching for the new collection the Woolrich design team came across the historic fabric and asked an Italian fabric manufacturer to reproduce the matt, robust and breathable material.

The Byrd House is installed in the 14 oz. backyard next to the colourful garages.

Join us for drinks at the bar and some BBQ!
