The Aiko Coat in Corte 7 M/L

//This is a OOAK jacket version made with repurposed traditional corte and newly-woven textiles. See the jacket in naturally-dyed textile versions here.//

Note that this jacket is our "Long" version, luxurious and very cozy! We combined a gorgeous pre-loved corte with a newly-woven naturally-dyed ikat textile for this unique piece.

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 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.
