~* Upcycled Patchwork Fleece Jacket *~
These amazing jackets are so beautiful – and they are made from upcycled shawls! These shawls have faults or have been damaged in manufacture or in shops or during transportation, this makes them unsaleable as shawls, but we recycled them into patchwork and make these amazing jackets!
The jackets are fully fleece lined in fleece made from recycled plastic, so they are super warm. The fit is slim for a flattering shape. The hood has drawstrings with patterned pulls for a snug fit. The jacket fastens with a zip at the middle front, and has deep kangaroo style pockets on both sides. The sleeves are long with a slim fit.
The exact combination of fabrics will vary for each jacket, which means that each garment is completely unique!
Handmade and Fairly Traded from Nepal with love.
Good News! This Upcycled Patchwork Fleece Jacket Automatically Qualifies for Free Standard UK Shipping!
Fabric and Washing info
100% Recycled Acrylic Fleece outer + Recycled acrylic Fleece lining + trimmings. Other fibres may be present <5% wool.
These upcycled shawls are ACRYLIC and not Yak wool as some retailers claim. However, due to the nature of using recycled/upcycled shawls we cannot 100% guarantee that there will be no wool fibres present, and therefore this jacket may not be suitable for Vegans.
Machine Wash on a Cool or Delicates Cycle. Do Not Tumble dry. Natural dyes may run for the first few washes, wash dark colours separately.

Eco-Friendly and Socially Conscious Ethical Upcycled Product
These jackets are made by upcycling damaged shawls and blankets / seconds that would otherwise go to waste. Our suppliers spend time sewing these into patchwork when they do not have other garments to make, ensuring that all their employees have work even in quiet periods, and absolutely no usable material is wasted. This is fair trade principles in action, and you can learn more about what fair trade means to us here.
We wanted to make some great products out of this fantastic upcycled material to match its story, so we created these patchwork jackets along with some shirts and trousers, using the same technique but different fabric types. All the patchwork is random and totally unique. The result is garments that are beautiful, totally unique and good for the environment – as well as beneficial for the skilled workers who made it. The patchwork garments have been such a success that we now have a whole range!
