This jacket is a bold, artistic take on fashion. The simple cut is based on a minimalist style reminiscent of the kimono. It is, as it were, a canvas on which a work of art in pastel shades has been created. This kimono jacket consists entirely of small pieces of textile scraps. It took 8 months to make.
This jacket comes from the rebirth collection of the House of Wandering Silk (HOWS) label in New Delhi. HOWS is a fashion label with a zero-waste policy. This means nothing is wasted.
For this collection, textile waste has been collected over many years and sorted by fabric and color. The fabrics are then cut into narrow pieces in long, flat strips. The strips of fabric are then hand-woven on a warp (warp) of white cotton threads. A special color card has been designed for each jacket. This jacket is therefore completely unique.
All processed materials are natural substances and therefore biodegradable. The jacket is made from about 1 kilo of textile waste. This creation was made in collaboration with women from marginalized communities from the outskirts of Delhi.
The jacket has an oversized cut with dropped shoulders and wide, full sleeves that can be turned up. The neckline is cut out and coconut buttons are used for the closure. Two sew-on pockets reverse the grid lines of the fabric. That gives a nice interruption effect.
The outer fabric is soft and light and the lining is a soft silk-cotton blend. A quilting stitch runs across the fabric to bind it to the lining. That gives extra strength.
You can wear this kimono jacket just as easily on a palazzo as with skinny jeans, over a t-shirt or with a thick sweater underneath. Make it part of your wardrobe for many different occasions so that you enjoy it to the fullest.
With this creation you wear textile art and you make a statement at the same time. Wearing recycled textiles is a conscious choice. You say no to waste and environmental pollution.
