Polar Bear Challenge 2014 – Greenland

 

A team from Dhu recently participated in the ‘Polar Bear Challenge 2014’ in Greenland – a race held over two days, comprising a half-marathon followed by a full marathon across the polar tundra and Arctic ice shelf. Adventure racing’s coldest global competition? Probably. Greenland was stunning – it was a privilege to be there, and to meet so many great people from all across the globe – and it was an unrivalled venue for some kit development and an R&D opportunity by using some of our new prototype garments.

From an international field of 250 participants, the two ‘Dhu Team’ members were the 1st and 2nd placed runners from the UK, finishing 11th and 13th in the overall standings.

Scottish Fashion Awards – Winner ‘Textile Brand of the Year’

 

Dhu was named ‘Textile Brand of the Year’ at the Scottish Fashion Awards 2014, in recognition of our innovation in textile design and our success in pioneering the use of cashmere in sports and leisurewear. The awards ceremony was hosted in central London, where guest speakers included Dame Vivienne Westwood. It was a fantastic evening celebrating the best of Scottish design and fashion and, as a fledgling business founded in the Scottish Highlands, we are immensely proud to have been recognised over and above much larger well-established brands.

ISPO BRANDNEW 2014/15 February 2014

 

The week in Munich for our experience as an ISPO BRANDNEW Finalist was, in a word, inspiring. A great opportunity to meet like-minded new businesses within the BRANDNEW Village but also a chance to walk the halls and be dazzled, daunted and inspired by the quality of certain exhibitors at this leading global outdoor industry exhibition.

We relished the opportunity to share our story and products with a discerning audience. Whats else to report? That’s easy – we’ll be back.
