The Pleece Turtleneck by Design House Stockholm belongs to the Pleece Collection. Designed to be layered, the Pleece Turtleneck can be easily tucked inside a jumper, cardigan or coat. Made by a unique blend of 75% polyester and 25% viscose, that sets it apart from other fleece fabrics. Also, the pleating process gives the fleece extra volume and softness. The fabric retains its pleating after washing. Suitable for both men and women, for indoor and outdoor use alike, the Pleece collection has turned into a modern classic.
Created in 1997 by Marianne Abelsson, the Pleece collection has changed very little over the years. Some models have been added. The colours change slightly as the seasons come and go. But it’s still based on the same timeless simplicity and quality that never goes out of style. The fabric is still pleated in Borås, Sweden. And it is still one of Design House Stockholm’s best selling products, sold in MoMA Store, New York, for 15 years.
Textile designer Marianne Abelsson started working with Design House Stockholm in 1997. She is educated at the Textile School in Borås and has been working as a designer and running her own business for many years.
