CLOUDVEIL - Dead or Alive?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

It seems that Cloudveil hasn't updated their website for this season, just dumping what little inventory they had leftover from last season.

After the ownership change from a season or so ago, this does not bode well for the future of this once forward thinking company from Jackson.

Does anyone have the skinny on their status as a viable manufacturer? Or should I just be grateful that I have last years Koven jacket and pants, and pray they last forever? :)

I haven't heard what was going on with them for this year. As you mentioned they are under new ownership. I know last year their product arrived into the US very late, might be the same issues this year too.

Alive!  And still forward-thinking (we hope).  We're working on getting the new Fall/Winter '11 gear up on the site so we can push it live early next week.  In the meantime, we'll be previewing some of the new stuff on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/cloudveil) over the next few days.  We hope your Kovens last forever... but we'll have some new colors you may want to take a look at!

Why the move from Jackson, WY to Mass.? (of all places)  Cloudveil to me was always synonymous with the Jackson Hole area.

BLynn, VAIL COLORADO APRIL 2011 082.JPG                                                                  that's a relief! Happy to hear this, I'll check you out next week then. How many Cloudveil pieces in this photo?

Is there, in addition to moving from Jackson area, a move to a different factory in China to actually make the clothing? anymore, a brand means nothing if the off shore manufacturer is not closely tied to that brand. It's like there should be a hyphenated name on the Lable: Cloudviel-Shinlee or something.

 

I still have a few pieces that are 30 to 40 years old. they were made in Colorado, Alpsport is one

Yeah, the new stuff is made in China, CO and Thailand, CO. :-)

 

Nothing on their website or FB as of this edit.
