The Company:
Konia Equestrian is a Canadian company that designs and manufactures high-end equestrian downwear for both men and women. It all started with a rider that wanted more from her outerwear…

The layering of clothes to gain any type of warmth seemed infinite and the end result was cumbersome and bulky. Why couldn’t there be a jacket that could combine the elements of warmth, style and practicality in one? In 2015, Claudia Yiu partnered up with one of the industries leading down jacket manufacturers in Canada and the vision of Konia Equestrian was brought to life. With a styling inspired by classic and timeless designs, Konia incorporates new age technical deluxe fabrics with a functional, complimentary fit. The collection spans over various temperatures to accommodate the ever-changing Canadian climates. Using only the finest materials and premium blend of goose and duck down, Konia Equestrian’s mantra is to create the first ever luxury Canadian made down jacket line exclusively for equestrian riders and enthusiasts. Although still a relatively new company, Konia products are becoming a ringside name on the North American stage from the recreational rider all the way to the international rider. This is where fashion meets function.
This is Konia Equestrian.
