The Denim Brand From Stockholm, Sweden
The C.O.F. Studio denim brand from Stockholm, Sweden mixes traditional with contemporary influences. This menswear brand was started by Per Fredrikson after having over four decades of denim experience. Since the start, the C.O.F. Studio has grown into a so-called total look denim brand developing (selvedge) jeans, shirts, and jackets. Classic styles that are made with the finest fabrics from mills in Italy, Portugal, and Japan.
The Partners Of The Brand
The approach of C.O.F. Studio is to create timeless styles that can be worn each day of the week. They work closely with their producers which are carefully selected over the years. Their partners are family-owned and operated factories that produce with love and passion while having the same green mindset as C.O.F. Studio. This is to keep it close to themselves, or how they say, close the circle, the circle of friends.
How The Brand Started
The launch of the brand kickstarted when Per Frederikson was having dinner with friends. They were discussing what defines good quality in today’s clothing industry. Ever since that day, they have been telling their denim story and what they define as good quality together with a small group of supplier partners. For them, it’s not about where the product is made, but by whom.
The Sustainable Approach Of The Brand
All the C.O.F. Studio styles are made with a sustainable approach, so made with the GOTS standards. GOTS is a non-profit program and stands for Global Organic Textile Standards. Their vision is to set requirements throughout the supply chain in textile manufacturing using organically produced raw materials.
They also work with BCI, which stands for Better Cotton Initiative. This is driven by a non-profit organization that promotes better standards for cotton farmers.
The Cirle Of Friends Stores
The C.O.F. Studio brand is sold via a selected network of retailers, but they also have two own stores, called Circle of Friends. These stores are located in Malmö and Stockholm. Next to their brand, they carry a fine selection of other brands that matches perfectly with the C.O.F. Studio.
