LIFETIME SERVICE
Our biggest goal is to reduce overproduction. To reach this goal, we have to pay just as much attention to what happens after you purchase our products, as how they are made. This is why the Grandpa longsleeve (and all of our other products) come with a lifetime service. In other words, we will help you prolong its life as long as you promise to take good care of it and use it as long as possible. Read more here.

ORGANIC WOOL
The Grandpa longsleeve is made with organic wool and silk. That means that there are strict requirements that need to be met throughout the entire value chain. Toxic chemicals are not used, the wool is mulesing-free and the garments are not treated with Superwash or other similar treatments, to name a few examples. Read more about why we use organic wool and its advantages here.

CLASSIC DESIGN
A key part of our design philosophy is that we don't care about trends. We design clothes that we genuinely believe will look good in 2, 10 and 100 years. Our goal is to design classics. Every. Time. That also means that our clothes have clean and simple designs, come in timeless colors and come without big logos and illustrations.

The Grandpa longsleeve is one of these classics. It was hot 30 years ago and will be just as hot for the next 30 years (at least!).

BUTTONS
The buttons on the grandpa longsleeve are made with wood from Portuguese olive trees (that have stopped producing olives). The wood from olive trees is so strong that these buttons don't need to be treated. In other words: A completely natural product.

THE STORY
The Grandpa longsleeve was one of Northern Playground's first products. The background for the idea was pretty random; we had way too much Ziplongs® material on our hands and had to find something else to use it for. All of a sudden the Grandpa longsleeve was a permanent part of our collection. Luckily, there have been som design changes since then.
