ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CLOTHING
Mikk-Line have as a clothing manufacturer a great responsibility to both children and environment. That is why we contribute to a better environment and a more sustainable production. We are constantly working to find more environmentally friendly solutions. We can highlight our rainwear made from recycled plastic. This autumn we are expanding the range so a large part of our outerwear would be made from recycled materials.
Most of Mikk-Line outerwear collection is treated with BIONIC-FINISH® ECO, which is an environmentally friendly impregnation. It is biodegradable and free of fluorinated substances.
BIONIC-FINISH® ECO guarantees:
- the outerwear is dirt repellent
- the colors last longer
- the outerwear dries faster
- better breathability
The Mikk-Line RED Rainwear is made from recycled plastic..
On each product you can see how many plastic bottles, we have used in production. We recycle e.g. 23 plastic bottles for a raincoat in size 104. The production of recycled plastic rainwear uses 80% less energy compared to rainwear made of polyester and oil.

We use Oeko-Tex® certified yarn for the entire range of Mikk-Line brushed wool – it is made of the softest MERINO WOOL. The wool is also Mulesing Free – for a better animal welfare.
Oeko-Tex® is a health mark with restrictions on the use of harmful chemicals. In practice that means that wearing colothes with the Oeko-Tex® certificate does not have a detrimental effect on your health.
Mikk-Line is designed from a 3-layer concept! With multiple layers you can achieve the best protection against the harsh weather. More layers are easier to adjust to the ever changing weather conditions because it is easy to either add or remove a layer if needed.
The base layer – comfort
We recommend thin merino wool as the inner layer. It ensures that the skin does not feel wet because wool draws moisture away from the skin.
What does watercolumn mean?
Water resistance is measured by water column – that is the amount of water pressure (measured in millimeters) which can be applied to the material before the water penetrates the fabric.
You can make a material waterproof with a waterproof membrane. The seams should always be either welded or taped in order to prevent the water penetrating the seams.
Not waterproof but the clothes might haven gotten a water-repellent coating.
Waterproof but in very heavy showers, the water can begin to penetrate.
Completely waterproof. The rainwear stays dry even during heavy showers.
8.000 mm and higher:
Extremely waterproof. It can be used in extreme weather conditions.
What is breathability?
Breathability is measured in grams of sweat per m2 fabric through 24 hours (g/m2/24h).That is the amount of time that it takes for the sweat to penetrate the material. The material has often a membrane containing many tiny holes to achieve breathability. The sweat can penetrate these holes assuring breathability in the product – without letting the water penetrate the fabric.
Low breathability. The product is still comfortable at low physical activity.
Average breathability. The product allows the body to breathe during light physical activity.
High breathability. Applied to products that are used for high physical activity.
