Discover the beauty of conscious fashion with our Upcycled Beige Fleece Shacket—a unique blend of eco-conscious design and social impact.

This jacket, rescued from the brink of landfill, tells a powerful story of transformation and second chances. Originally discarded by a retail brand and never reaching the shop floor, it has been given a new lease on life through our upcycling efforts.

This fleece shacket showcases traditional Andean motifs, each meticulously handcrafted by men in prison in Peru. These intricate motifs not only add a touch of cultural heritage to the jacket but also represent a journey of redemption and creativity.

By wearing this shacket, you're not just making a style statement; you're supporting a community of artisans seeking to turn their lives around.

  • Made from supersoft fleece fabric for optimal comfort
  • Handwoven Andean motifs for a personal finish
  • Limited edition of 24 pieces, assuring you exclusivity

Details

Ethically made

We follow the World Fair Trade Organisation's guidelines to ensure our practices are fair and improve the lives of those who work with us.

The strips with the Andean motifs have been handmade by men in prison in Peru. We pay them a fair wage and help the ones that want to set up their own local businesses. 

The shacket was made by another fashion brand and discarded (ready to go to landfill) before even reaching the shop floor. We bought it and gave it a chance of life.

Materials

The shacket is made of 100% polyester.

The motifs have been made using a blend of alpaca and sheep wool, so they are soft to the touch.

The handmade motifs

Each motif tells a story and represents aspects of life in the community.

The motif that looks like an X and an O is called tankachuro (or churo for short), it's also known as the design of the mamas (moms) because it's one of the first that they teach their children. The circular shapes represent the eyes of the lama.

Please note that each artisan may weave the motifs slightly differently so the ones in your clothes might not look exactly the same as the ones in the picture. This makes every piece unique and special.
