The Aiko Coat in Stripes 2 M/L

//This is a OOAK jacket version made with repurposed light-weight traditional corte. See the jacket in naturally-dyed textile versions here.//

Note that this jacket is our "Long" version, luxurious and very cozy! This piece was made with a light-weight and very special pre-loved corte. Because of its weight, it is breezy and light, producing movement with every step. We absolutely ADORE the pastel lines in this corte. Because it was previously worn was a traditional garment, this corte in particular shows a little bit of wear, and some staining is visible. We have adjusted its price accordingly.

Named after Mari's mom Aiko, who helped us with the base pattern for this Japanese-inspired jacket. This is a true one-of-a-kind version using a traditional corte (wrap skirt). The result is a cozy light-weight cotton jacket that is great on its own and layered. Possibly the best part - generous pockets!

The pattern does not have defined shoulder lines, allowing for a versatile fit for body shapes small to large. Close it with a pin if you'd like, or just leave open for a haori-like wear. The sleeves are 3/4 length.

$10 donated per jacket sale to Friendship Bridge, chosen by Aiko, since she was so kind to share this pattern with us. The organization works to create opportunities for rural indigenous women in Guatemala.

Including a mending kit with each jacket, in-line with this piece's Japanese influence! With a few different textile squares (including the same textile as the jacket) and naturally-dyed cotton threads, we hope for these jackets to be loved and used for years to come as well as mended if needed in the future. When done with care and love, we believe that mending makes garments increasingly beautiful.
