For holiday 2012, Duluth Trading offers several products, styles and colors ideal for women with varied interests.  For the woman who spends most of her time outdoors (or those Mrs. Claus types), Duluth offers the Fjäll Räven Luhkka Cape, now available in vibrant red. Add a great flannel shirt with bi-swing back for easier movement, and bootcut denim jeans.  Top off the look with a classic, yet feminine Stormy Kromer hat, now available in classic black and white with a flower for added style.

“At Duluth Trading, a gift is more than a gift; everything we offer is solution-focused, designed for real women and built to last,” says Stephanie Pugliese, president and chief merchandising officer for Duluth Trading Co. “Our women’s collection is part of a woman’s everyday arsenal and is a great alternative to the frivolous and flimsy gift she’ll use only once.” 

For the gifted green thumb, Duluth Trading features a utility vest, now with better-built pockets and a shapelier fit, a no-fuss bag with mesh, flaps, and open pockets to carry it all, and new women’s high performance gloves by Womanswork® designed for success when tough jobs attack.  Make her life even easier next season with the Japanese Hori Hori knife that does the work of multiple garden tools.

For the women with lots to haul, new oil cloth totes from Duluth Trading outsmart the elements to protect your gear.  Featuring a rich burgundy new for holiday 2012, the Oil Cloth travel tote, day tote and business totes are about as secure as you’ll find anywhere with impressive organization.  Available in a variety of styles, the bags feature ample space and pockets galore.

WOMEN'S FJALL RAVEN LUHKA CAPE / ITEM #27517 / $299.00
Brave Frigid and Freezing Weather Protected by the Fjall
The reindeer herding Sami people of Sweden know frigid and freezing weather quite well. Their protection? The Fjäll Räven Luhkka Cape. Inspired by the arctic fox, this cape is functional in all weather conditions. It is designed like a teepee to trap heat, a half-zip gives extra wind protection when the hood is up and the fabric actually swells when damp, delivering wind and water resistance as the weather worsens. A fixed adjustable hood with detachable arctic faux fur and buttoning at wrist keeps cape in position. The large zippered kangaroo pocket offers inside and outside access.

Need a Little Asset Management? Women’s Stretch Boot Cut Jeans Have It!
Meet the pair made for women of all shapes and sizes: our Stretch Boot Cut Jeans.

A trim fit through the hips and thighs closely follows curves, but thanks to stretch in the fabric, is never too tight. And a clever bonus: the middle back belt loop is shaped like a “V”, which keeps your belt from riding up when you bend, sit or crouch. They say no one's perfect. But who cares when you've got stretch jeans that make everybody look good?

The Kind of Hat Stormy Kromer’s Wife Would Make for Herself
When you hear old Stormy's story, you'll understand why his wife knitted the original Stormy Kromer cap for him - and why the style has endured since 1903! This women's cap is made in the USA of premium-quality, pre-shrunk merino wool and has a soft cotton lining inside. Ruggedly constructed to keep out wind and cold, it can be pulled down over your ears to keep them snug. And this isn't a man's cap: it's made with a shorter brim and feminine cut, with a wool blossom on the brim just for us.Duluth Hat

WOMEN’S HIGH PERFORMANCE GLOVES / ITEM #11514 / $22.50
Womanswork® Gloves Reinforced with ToughTek®
You be the judge! Thanks to extremely durable, synthetic Toughtek fibers in the palms and fingertips, these lightweight gloves offer excellent grip when wet or dry – and they're less likely to wear at key stress points. Ventilation on the back of the hands wicks moisture while you work; light padding on the palms helps prevent blisters. Gloves come with carabiners, so you can hook them to your belt or garden bag – and you won't end up with one glove in the shed, one in the garden, like some of us!
