Handmade organic cotton denim jacket | Patchwork remnants navy blue duster | Oversized sustainable coat |Women’s ethical denim cardigan
This zero waste patchwork denim jacket is made from organic cotton fabric remnants. To make it, we carefully cut fabric remnants into squares or rectangles and sewed them into my designed layout using the traditional Korean technique, called bojagi. A lot of time and love went into this piece and there is only one of them! The size is a medium but it will fit a variety of sizes- if you have trouble with fit, we will of course allow returns!
The duster coat sits perfectly in a capsule wardrobe. The oversized kimono style makes it easy to wear over anything and as everyday or occasion-wear. The fabric is good quality and has a little stretch. It will also get softer as you wash it. It is large enough to go over layers but can also fit under overcoats.

We make our denim jacket from organic cotton. Organic cotton is more sustainable that regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilisers. Healthy soil is maintained through crop rotation, preventing the loss of nutrients into water bodies, both preventing water pollution and the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic cotton farming also uses significantly less water than ordinary cotton, whereby farmers rely mainly on rainwater. Find out more about organic farming at the Textile Exchange!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper and ship in reusable and compostable mailbags.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy. For example, which fabrics should you look for and which brands are making efforts to make their supply chains more transparent and ethical.
As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy
