We’re thrilled to offer you a limited run of one-of-a-kind upcycled denim jackets! The incorporation of light and dark denim creates a patchwork piece that adds modern lines to a laid back, retro 70’s look. 100% handcrafted by artisans in Ecuador and made completely from recycled denim, this is a purchase you can feel good about (and look great in). And what you see in the photo will be exactly what you get; they’re all hanging out waiting for you to make your choice. All available jackets are shown individually, so get your favorite pattern in your size before it’s gone!

We work with seamstresses from rural communities to handcraft each of our pieces, enabling them to become independent through their skills and provide for their families. We pay 7% of the price of each of our products directly to the seamstress that manufactured it. 

Did you know an average pair of jeans requires over 1,800 gallons of water to be manufactured? That is the equivalent to the amount of water that a family of four needs for 64 weeks. ⁠Reusing fabric offsets the production of new material and in turn, offsets the usage of resources. By upcycling denim through this jacket, we avoid the waste of roughly 7,800 gallons of water and give new life to around 1.8 pounds of textiles.
