This sustainable Sofus Patchwork SILK Jacket is made out of the finest pure silk vintage saris from India handpicked by the owners of SISSEL EDELBO. We have selected different pieces of fabric that are matching in color, but at the same time not too similar, so that the patchwork look comes out just right. The cotton lining is hand printed in beautiful block print - an old Indian printing technique. Sofus is designed with pockets on the front, that’s both practical and compliments the over all look. The jacket can be worn outdoors, or indoors as a cardigan. Yet trendy patchwork look. Enjoy this work of art for many seasons to come.
All SISSEL EDELBO styles are being upcycled of vintage sari and in that way sustainable. In the past, these saris has been worn by the Indian women, which means that smaller imperfections such as small stains and loose threads can occur. However, to us these imperfections are the clothes' unique beauty flaws. They reflect the life and the love that the previous owner has added to the fabric. We hope you will love the story of the material as much as we do - FROM ONE WOMAN TO ANOTHER.
