FAQs - Product Features
What can I purchase in the webshop?
In this webshop, you can purchase designer coats and shirts designed by Petra Földi. As a special advantage, the majority of the coats are waterproof. Our products are primarily available in Standard (Confection) Sizes, but our special customization service is also available to you. Essential features, characteristics of the items and instructions for their use can be found on the information page of each product.
What does the uniqueness and handmade quality of the products mean?
Each item is handmade and individually produced, upon ordering, ensuring the uniqueness and quality of Petra Földi coats and shirts. This production concept may also affect the delivery times, as explained in the “Shipping” section. A special advantage that boosts your coat’s quality and value is that nearly all pieces are waterproof – so weather will never spoil your unique look again.
Where are my products made?
We believe in sustainable, small scale, European manufacturing instead of mass production. Contrarily to global fast fashion trends, our brand was born and is located in Budapest, the heart of Europe and the products are handmade by local manufacturers. If you choose us, you say no to soulless assembly-line production and you support a talented, emerging designer, making you pieces you’ll most probably see on nobody else on the street!
What makes the fabrics of the waterproof coats special and eco-friendly?
We are continuously developing our product technology and seeking the highest level of eco-friendly fabrics available. In case of the waterproof items, the upper material itself also unites two or three layers, depending on the given type of fabric. One of the layers in each case is an optimally breathable, 100% waterproof and 100% recyclable membrane, made by fluorocarbon-free treatments, free from PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) and PFCs (perfluorinated compounds), composed of perfectly safe polyether/ester. For some of the waterproof fabrics, the upper layer is also made with fluorocarbon-free techniques.
What does it mean that some of the coats are water-repellent or waterproof?
As indicated for each of our designer coats, some of them are made of water-repellent fabrics while many others are waterproof. Water-repellent fabrics are not easily penetrated by water, the product actually has physical properties that repels water on contact. Waterproof fabrics are impervious to water since the waterproofness is > 20,000 mm water column which means a very high-level protection, similar to the resistance provided by waterproof hiking garments.
Why is it important to use fully taped seams?
The stitching of the garment can be a weak point, as the water can seep through. That is why we use waterproof taping on the stitched seams for all raincoats.
What is my size?
Our products are primarily available in Standard (Confection) sizes going from S to XL for men and XS to L for women. To find your size, please check “Women’s Standard Sizes” or “Men’s Standard Sizes” on product pages which converts your body measurements into Petra Földi clothing sizes.
Can I purchase a custom size product?
Yes, you can! If you wish to purchase a custom-made product, we will produce your item in a way that it will fit you the most perfectly. In order to do so, we ask you to provide us with your measurements. Please follow the instructions of the “Custom Sizes” tab under “Size Guide” and use the applicable measuring guide. We produce your custom-made item within the standard delivery times applicable to non-customized products. The invoiced purchase price of the product to be customized will increase by +15%.
How can I protect my coat purchased?
Over time, with wear, the coats’ great water repellent and breathable features can become diminished, especially in case of water-repellent fabrics. If you start to noticing that your raincoat is beginning to absorb water instead of repelling it, then it might be time for you to reproof it. In order to ensure that your coat won’t be altered by the proofer to be used, you should first test your proofer on a small area of your raincoat. If you wish to reproof your coat, we suggest you to choose among the various types of widely available PFC-free eco proofers.
