Handmade bamboo jacket | Oversized kimono-style jacket coat
I make this zero waste patchwork bamboo jacket from 100% bamboo fabric remnants. I hand dyed each remnant a variation of blue-green, giving them a soft watercolour feel. Against the light, it has an amazing appearance of stained glass. The oversized kimono style makes it easy to wear over anything and as everyday or occasion-wear. It is large enough to go over layers but can also fit under overcoats.
To make the jacket, I carefully cut fabric remnants into squares or rectangles and stitched them together using the traditional Korean technique, called pojagi. This jacket is a one size and fits most people. However, if you have trouble with fit, I allow returns, alterations and bespoke orders.

- 100% Bamboo viscose
I make this patchwork jacket from the offcuts of 100% bamboo viscose fabric. Bamboo is grown without fertilisers and pesticides (unlike non-organic cotton which is heavily sprayed). This bamboo viscose is made in a closed loop system and the yarn is Oeko-tex certified as being free from harmful substances.
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.

You can machine wash our denim kimono jacket at 30 degrees C. Drip dry and iron on medium heat. Do not bleach.
To waste less water, energy and to make your clothes last longer, wash at cooler temperatures, wash your clothes less often and don’t tumble dry.
The size is a medium but it will fit a variety of sizes- if you have trouble with fit, I will of course allow returns!
