The Classic Signature Solid Jerseys
Signature solids are all luxuriously deep-dyed with a carefully selected colour, inspired by some element of Swedish nature, often the colour of a flower.
This dyeing technique results in an intense colour with a beautiful lustre finish that really sings in sunlight.
The Sigr stripe emblem around the collar, the matching, dyed YKK zipper that keeps the colour unbroken and the accent-coloured finger-friendly teardrop zip pullers are just some of the details which make these jerseys an understated classic of sustainable style.
Purple colour symbolism: BRAVERY, WISDOM, PASSION, POWER & AMBITION.
Fun Sigr fact: This cycling jersey is named after a flower that blooms in late summer and has bright purple flowers (known as Hydrangea in English).
Legend has it that the French botanist and explorer Philbert Commerson was on a voyage of exploration through Asia where only men were allowed. Philbert couldn't bear to be parted from his wife Hortense Barré, and so smuggled her along on the voyage dressed like a man, pretending to be his servant. She was eventually discovered during the voyage but it was too late to remove her by that time. In 1759 he discovered and brought a beautiful flower back to Europe. Guess what he named it? After the lovely Hortense of course.
Hortensia is one of the few flowers to be named after a woman. We really like that.
