Named after samizdat, a form of dissident activity across the Eastern Bloc in which individuals reproduced censored and underground makeshift publications, often by hand, and passed the documents from reader to reader. Simultaneously celebrating utilitarianism and the beauty of ornamentation, the Samizdat Sweater is made from two tones of undyed and untreated natural British wool perfectly suited to winter weather.  Each sweater comes with a one-of-a-kind vintage Soviet badge from Ukraine.

Garment Care

Naturally self-cleaning, wool repels water and dirt, and its keratin content breaks down sweat that may accumulate on the surface of the fiber during wear, making woolen items extremely easy to care for and less susceptible to staining. Allow woolens to air out for one full day after each wear for best results.

If a wash is eventually needed, try a cool delicate handwash with soapberries and dry in a well ventilated, shady area.
