Werk are incredibly comfy organic cotton canvas shorts with technical qualities that make them perform on the hill, whether you’re hiking the Ben or biking Offa’s.

  • Stretchy fabric with an articulated cut for full freedom of movement 
  • Organic cotton canvas is soft to wear but tough against abrasion
  • Thicker rear belt loop for chalk bags and a zipped thigh pocket

Everything about the Werk is designed for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. We've used an articulated fit and gusseted crotch, allowing you to move freely whether bouldering, biking, bivvying or hiking up to the mountain refuge….

The organic cotton canvas fabric is super comfy but incredibly tough under abrasion — ideal for the infamous sandpaper effect of gritstone crags. Blended with a small amount of spandex, the Kraft are pretty darn stretchy too, easily passing the ‘foot-next-to-your-face-heel-hook’ test.

A touch of spandex in the fabric lets the Werk short move with you, not against you and the gusseted crotch gives you even more room to move unrestricted. These shorts have passed the ‘get-your-foot-improbably-high-to-avoid-that-rubbish-foothold’ test, so they’re pretty darn stretchy.

The thicker central rear belt loop is ace for attaching your chalk bag and a zipped thigh pocket is ideal for stashing your keys or cards so you don’t lose them when you're bouncing about on the bike or hanging off overhangs.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

Like your favourite pair of jeans, these shorts will feel tighter straight out of the packet or washing machine, but: DON’T PANIC - they’ll relax a little as you wear them.
To look after your Werk, wash them inside out at 30°C with similar colours. Avoid using detergents and conditioners where possible. They'll soon smell of chalk and heather anyway.

Environmental considerations

The Werk shorts use organic cotton that is Global Organic Textile Standard-certified (GOTS). The GOTS is independently verified by a third party and is awarded to cotton that demonstrates a high level of environmental sustainability and ethical working practices.
Organic cotton farming is better for the soil, produces significantly less CO₂, uses less water and eliminates the use of harmful pesticides. And it feels great!
