Fleischer Couture – the beginning
The idea of Fleischer Couture was born out of a desire to create a ski jacket for women that was both functional and looked good. In early 2000, this was hard to come by and we saw a gap in the market for stylish and functional ski wear for women. After studying design and marketing abroad, we returned to Norway and got to work on making the dream a reality. Our goal was to create clothes and expressions that were not yet on the market.
By combining fashion and sport we wanted to create products every woman feels good in despite cold weather. The Fleischer Couture signature coat, The Down Coat with Alpaca, is the perfect example of that!
Exclusivity has always been key to the brand’s identity. In the first few seasons garments were numbered and produced as a limited edition. Today, they are no longer numbered, but exclusivity is taken care of through distribution.
We strive to develop timeless, durable and good quality garments. Therefore, a lot of efforts is spent on product development. All products are designed in Norway and mainly produced in China. The design, fit, technical details and material selection of our products are created for active women in everyday life.
In the Fleischer Couture collection it is the details that make our garments stand out. These may be gold detailing on a raincoat or gold buttons on a down coat.
At Fleischer Couture sustainable production is high on our agenda. Our choice of materials and the way we conduct our business is guided by our commitment to act responsibly to people and animals. This work is demanding for a small company like us, but we are motivated by seeing that even small measures make difference.
Fleischer Couture is a member of the Ethical Trade Initiative (IEH).
Our down jackets and coats are made of animal-friendly down from geese that are used in food production. Our down coats have alpaca fur attached to the hood. We do not support fur farming and therefore we only use fur from alpaca who dies a natural causes.
