Jacket, Sukka Citta. Jeans, deadstock Levi’s.

A few weeks ago, I got an email from this great slow fashion brand that really caught my attention. The thing that sets this brand apart from other slow fashion brands is that they work directly with villages on a very small scale to ensure that the fabrics are made in the right way. #MadeRight is a standard they created to ensure that the artisans are paid a living wage, use environmentally sustainable practices, and preserve their traditional culture. Their mission is to drive change for inclusive growth within the craft industry in Indonesia. My jacket was handwoven in the village of Medono. Read more about the villages they work with here!
