This jacket is made out of old indigo herringbone jeans and organic denim fabric. Each piece is carefully selected and cut out from the recycled herringbone denim in a shape to create this long jacket. To make a pattern to a fitted jacket based on old jeans there are several things to keep in mind. Each pattern piece needs to be made in a “cut” to fit a jeans panel, and keep the shape of the new fit and to be stitched together to a garment. Before placing the pattern pieces, all jeans need to be unpicked and sorted by color and shade, finally placing the patchwork – it’s a pattern piece puzzle.


The design is inspired by a Japanese kimono. The jacket is half lined with shibori dyed cotton dyed by Maria in her atelier. An indigo tape is added to the waist, attached in 2 belt loops up-cycled from the herringbone jeans.
