The collection emphasizes the idea of slow luxury and to create soulful products, that stand for themselves. The collection offers strong basics with a focus on outerwear made of Austrian Loden, 100 % Wool, which means biodegradable and therefore 100% sustainable outerwear.
The selection of fabrics include a special thin Loden, that has an Aquastop finish. Monochrome silhouettes in a dark red, creme-white, black and grey show a contemporary, reduced language. They are accomplished by a green colored lambfur. With well selected high quality fabrics from european production companies the collection offers clean cuts with a couture approach through ruffles and pleats.
The silhouettes and details of the coats and jackets are close to traditional trenchcoats, capes (Austrian `Wetterfleck ́) Parkas or sportive hoodies. The accessories range offers a tobacco colored leather for the saddle bag and a new style of an extra large crossbody-bag, and an intriguing green colored lambfur as a new color option for the furbags.
`Grey Friend ́ is the first style of the sustainable accessories-line of AGNES NORDENHOLZ and it is made in Italy. It combines tradition, quality and craftsmanship. The fur comes from the `Heidschnucke of Lüneburger Heath ́, a free-grazing sheeprace from northern Germany.
While growing up the sheep develop the typical grey fur. Each piece is therefor unique through the natural variation of colouring.
The `Schladminger Loden ́
Near Schladming at the foot of the Dachstein Massif, where the Steiner family founded a “Lodenwalke” (mill) in 1888 – that is where the Schladming Loden is produced. The wool used comes from Tyrolean mountain sheep, which Steiner purchases directly from local farmers. Wool is a renewable resource that can be shorn from sheep annually. It is biodegradable and kinder to the environment than oil-based synthetics, which contribute to global pollution. Wool is sustainable.

The handbag combines vegetable tanned leather and sheepfur from the Heidschnucke, while the bomber is a combination of traditional Austrian Loden `Schladminger ́, vegetable tanned leather and sheepfur from the german Heidschnucke.
