MEA Upcycle Studio
Denim jacket PAINTER
Painter is a long denim jacket with a slightly downward widening silhouette. The jacket has beautifully fitting, undersized raglan sleeves, the length of which can be adjusted with the help of reversible cuffs. Fair pockets and zipper at the front.
There are no two of them alike, as the color tones of the jeans and the placement of the pieces are realized in each garment individually.
Material: 100% reused jeans from Finland.
Manufacturing: manufactured in Finland by Orivesi.
The jacket is made to order and takes about 7 working days to complete.
Why is this a greener option?
The production of one pair of jeans made of new cotton consumes more than 10 liters of drinking water and a large amount of chemicals needed for cultivation. By reusing jeans that are no longer needed in Finland, both natural resources are saved and the amount of textile waste generated is reduced. MEA upcycle studio mainly uses unsuitable jeans, such as broken jeans, which are sorted for the studio by Nextiili in Tampere. The MEA upcycle studio also receives broken and unnecessary clothing directly from consumers.
Before working on, the jeans are cleaned by washing.
What about ethics?
MEA upcycle studio products are manufactured by designer and artisan Elina Korri. The products have the Key Flag symbol issued by the Finnish Labor Union.
