Materials and production

Nearly all Sasta products are manufactured in the EU, with a minority produced in selected factories in China and India. Thanks to our established supplier relations, we are confident that the products are produced responsibly and meet our high quality criteria. We continuously work together with our partners to ensure best practices, while also monitoring them.
 

SASTA Polyester Cotton Fabrics

Two different kinds of ecological 65 % recycled polyester, 35 % organic cotton woven fabrics. Both are strong and tighly woven materials with good abrasion resistant properties. The materials are wind resistant due to its tight weave yet breathable - the surface is water and dirt repellent with natural wax and Nikwax Cotton ProofTM. Nikwax Cotton ProofTM can be retreated when needed.
  • Quality 31 - Heavy Sasta Weight Natural Wax Proof - Very strong and tightly woven canvas fabric. Extremely durable, for hardwearing.
  • Quality 33 - Classic Sasta Natural Wax Proof - Strong and tighly woven. Cool and highly breathable.


Recycled Wool

Recycled wool is made from recycled fabrics and old scraps of knitwear, spun together with virgin fibres using the traditional recycling techniques of Italy´s Prato Green district. Recycled Wool is virtually water repellent and washable field wool. The material is highly breathable, warm and wind resistant fabric due its boiled and tightly woven structure.


Wool

Wool is a breathable material with excellent thermal insulation properties. It absorbs and transfers moisture effectively, without ever feeling wet. It is the only fibre that keeps you warm even when it is wet. Wool has natural water- and dirt-repelling properties, and it is easy to keep clean by airing.


Ventile®

Ventile® is a densely woven, very breathable and durable fabric from 100% cotton. Ventile® is not coated or laminated. Instead, the cotton fibres swell when wet, making the fabric tight and water-repellent. Thus the fabric provides excellent protection against wind, rain, snow, and cold.

GORE-TEX® Z-Liner

Traditional hunting garments often have a Z-Liner construction. A GORE-TEX® membrane laminated to a light fabric forms a Z-Liner lining between the surface material and the inner lining, in both jackets and trousers.
 

GORE-TEX® LTD Liner

The GORE-TEX® membrane is laminated to the mesh lining of the garment. The surface material of the jacket or trousers is separate from this lining.
 

GORE-TEX® 2-layer

Two-layer GORE-TEX® material is excellently suited to most outdoor activities. The GORE-TEX® membrane has been laminated to the surface material. A separate lining improves the comfort and versatility of the garment.
 

GORE-TEX® 3-Layer

GORE-TEX® 3-Layer  is the optimal material for extreme conditions. The three-layer structure has an effective GORE-TEX® membrane, joined to both the surface material and the heavy-duty inner lining. Since the various layers cannot rub against each other, the wear-resistance of the garment is excellent. The products are light and comfortable.

Gore-Tex® InfiniumTM Garments

Gore-Tex® InfiniumTM garments offer maximum breathability and are completely windproof, enabling you to give a top performance even during extreme physical exertion.  

Completely windproof structure
