Have you ever tried shopping for a women’s jacket and wondered, “Why is everything pink?” Burton heard that exasperation loud and clear from their community. And the solution was simple: start asking what women actually wanted from their jackets.
Aki Onodera, based in Hokkaido, Japan, was one of the many women who participated in Burton’s global insights study, and they surprised her with a visit to see the jacket she helped to make. Check the video on Burton’s Insta to learn more about Aki and the newly created Balsam Jacket.
