The color and word green are almost too perfect for naming the new Cikkel Copenhagen GREEN JERSEY collection: It's the color of hope. It symbolizes sustainability and is traditionally worn by the most consistent sprinter in Tour de France. Obvious? Yes! Relevant? Hell yeah!!! Are we proud of it? You bet!
THE GREEN JERSEY COLLECTION is the most sustainable product we've ever created, made out of 60% recycled left-over cotton scraps from textile factories and 40% recycled plastic. As a result, a t-shirt saves more than 2000 liters of water, and a Green Jersey sweatshirt saves up to 4.370 liters of water.
And when the product quality is just as cool as the great idea. It's hard not to fall in love with THE GREEN JERSEY.
The Mission On Two Wheels - unique collab with ProOwned Cycling
Cikkel Copenhagen is on a mission to create " A Movement On Two Wheels ."We have decided that we will use our passion for cycling to create positive change for both people and the environment.
One day we were looking at one of our old cycling jerseys - and we got a great (but a bit crazy) idea: "What if we could turn the used jersey into something new, cool, and useful?" like a musette (tote-bag).
And there it was. The unique upcycled Musette from Cikkel Copenhagen - combining cycling passion, product design, sustainability, and coolness. Perfect. But there was one thing missing. We needed a partner who could help provide all the necessary jerseys to scale up the idea and go into production.
Then we got another idea. "Let's reach out to ProOwned Cycling."
ProOwned Cycling is founded on offering cycling fans the cycling clothing and equipment that the professional cycling teams were no longer allowed to wear due to new sponsors. The concept of reselling redundant cycling clothing has become so good for all parties that ProOwnedCycling has expanded the range so that it consists of casual clothes, equipment, accessories, and bikes from the big cycling teams. Most items are original and purchased directly from the pro-teams - and the best part is that most of them are still brand new.
The idea of upcycling both new, used and redundant jerseys is totally in line with ProOwned Cyclings' focus on circular business.
And we are proud to present the ProOwned Cycling x Cikkel Copenhagen collaboration where the two brands have joined forces on the "Musette Project," where all turnover from the sale of the musettes go directly to support projects Kofoeds Skole in Copenhagen.
The musettes will be sold online, at special venues, and in selected stores.
