Kimono / Noragi style coat with sherpa lining, by Kings of Indigo.This jacket sums up everything K.O.I. is about. Their Triple R philosophy: Repair, reuse, recycle, encourages us all to take care of our clothes a little better, to think a little slower and have alternatives to just throwing away an item when it suffers a little wear and tear.
For this Autumn/Winter, they made an extraordinary piece; a denim patchwork jacket, the Shotoku, inspired by the the Japanese craft of Boro.
Boro; meaning “ragged” or “tattered”Style was favored by the 19th and early 20th-century rural Japanese.Cotton was not common in Japan until well into the 20th century, so when a garment started to run thin in a certain area, the women would patch it with a small piece of scrap fabric using sashiko stitching.
The Shotoku is a kimono style jacket. It is made from 100% recycled materials - the shell being made of recycled denim materials, and thus all organic cotton. The lining is made from recycled acrylic sherpa.
And the best part? Each jacket is unique because it will have been made with different denim materials.
