Pittards Support for Ethiopian Olympic Team
Pittards is one company which won’t mind too much if the weather cools off during the Olympic Games. We have created special jackets for the Ethiopian Olympic team who were concerned that a major change in temperature could affect their performance. Pittards has had close contacts with Ethiopia for nearly 100 years and recently opened new leather garment and glove making factories in the country. The idea for team jackets originated from a meeting between the company and Ethiopian running legend Haile Gebrselassie.
