Playing it safe never sounded all that appealing to me. I have a feeling you and I have that in common.
The patchwork jacket you see here is inspired by boro, a class of Japanese workwear created by patching together different fabrics. We started with premium Japanese fabrics loomed on vintage machines by Three Looms, which takes its name from three regions in Japan that are considered masters of creating fabric imbued with story and history.
