Fashion designers Rolf Ekroth and Wataru Tominaga have each designed two prints and several different rainproof jackets for the collection. Ekroth’s camouflage prints are based on willowherb and other flowers found on Finnish summer meadows, whereas Tominaga’s prints have been inspired by the vibrancy of the colors of a tropical garden after the rain.

At the moment, Ekroth is one of the most internationally successful Finnish fashion designers. His collections have been broadly covered by international media. Ekroth launched his own collection at Pitti Uomo in 2019.
