Comfortable and functional shorts for every day of the week. Women’s Dock Shorts are a versatile allround outdoor garment that borrow looks and durability from classic workwear but have the technical benefits of modern sportswear.
What makes them special?
The workwear-inspired Women’s Dock Shorts are a tribute to the history of the Houdini headquarters in Finnboda Hamn, Stockholm, that used to be one of Sweden’s biggest shipyards. The concept is a pair of robust, durable shorts with all the benefits of modern performance fabrics. A perfect everyday garment for the active person.
How do they work?
Women's Dock shorts are crafted in Immix Weave, a strong fabric with a nice stretch. The high durability and low weight makes it suitable for activities like hiking or climbing, but the soft touch and high breathability is perfect for everyday use. The fabric is made in 75% recycled and 25% virgin polyester. It’s fully recyclable and Bluesign® certified.
When should I use them?
If you are looking for a pair of versatile everyday shorts for an active life, and also for outdoor activities like climbing or hiking, Women’s Dock Shorts is a perfect choice.
Don’t throw away this garment when it is worn out. The raw materials can be recycled and used again. Please return them to a Houdini recycling unit that can be found in our stores and at many retailers.
Light yet highly durable polyester fabric with mechanical stretch. Perfect for garments where you need a tough fabric that can take a lot of wear and tear.
When washing clothes made of synthetic fabrics, the use of a washing bag becomes even more important: It prevents microplastics from entering into rivers and oceans.
The Circular label means that this product is made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The Recycled label means that this garment contains at least 50% recycled fibers (often more, see product description). The source is either recycled clothes or other sources like PET bottles. We mainly use recycled polyester, which has many benefits. It reduces both CO2 emissions and water use compared to virgin polyester. How much depends on the type of recycling. One of our suppliers show 32% less CO2 emissions and 94% less water use for mechanically recycled polyester. Besides the production impact, the major shift is using "waste" as raw material instead of crude oil.
The Recyclable label means that the raw material in this product can be used for new products, instead of becoming waste. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.
The Bluesign® Label means that the production is vetted by a third party to eliminate any harmful chemicals or substances right from the beginning of the production process. This benefits both people, animals and our entire planet.
A sustainable choice
Recyclable - Nothing goes to waste
The fabric in this garment is made from pure polyester. When polyester is not mixed with other fibers, it is fully recyclable. This way, the raw material can become new resources instead of becoming waste.
