Tarvas is a young brand out of Helsinki, Finland that creates premium functional footwear inspired by the unpredictable climate and rugged beauty of their native country. Their first shoe—the aptly named 'Explorer'—emerges after several years of basement prototyping with an aesthetic that strikes an almost effortless balance between classic and contemporary. All Tarvas shoes are constructed from entirely EU-sourced materials and components, and each pair is assembled and hand-finished in Helsinki for quality assurance you can rely on whether on or off the pavement.
THE BIG RIG
The Paa Big Rig Jacket in Moss is a mid-weight Spring outer-layer constructed from Halley Stevensons® water repellent dry waxed cotton fabric. The Big Rig Jacket features a US-made UCAN® ring pull zipper, covered welt pockets, and a contrasting collar cut from a brown cotton serge fabric woven in Japan. The jacket is finished with oversized ring snaps at cuffs and hem adjustment tabs, and features reinforced elbow patches for extra durability where it matters. Like all waxed cotton garments, some variation in color and finish is considered normal. Expect this piece to patina beautifully with age and use.
