Sherpa Adventure Gear, the Nepalese brand, came out as one of the numerous winners of the Ispo Gold Award for an ultralight, hand-knitted wool sweater with Primaloft Silver insulation. The unusual combination will be available for only €280 at a retail, benefiting the local community in Nepal, but the company has set a production limit of 700 units because the ladies employed for this project in the village of Kritipur will not be able to do more. It would be too long to mention all the other 51 products that have won the Ispo Gold Award this year, but the jury seems to have appreciated the introduction of new products that innovate in lightness, material combinations and versatility, like those of Briko, Eider and Houdini, for example.
