Nudie is known for going great lengths to ensure that a pair of their jeans lasts as long as it can. Offering free repairs for all of their jeans, the company does well to provide services that prolong the life of their denim duds. Not only that, but they’ll even take jeans that have gone to pasture and give them new life by recycling the old fibers for use in new jeans. Their latest project, however, reincarnates their dead jeans into homewares and furniture.
For practical use or as a beautiful art piece, they’ve made a simple camp stool. The inseams and outseams are taken from 9 pairs of jeans and are then braided together by hand using one recycled leather belt and one leather patch. The In-and-Out Seam Camper Seat comes in a limited run of just 250 in both dark blue and light blue options.
From the same jeans used to make the camp stools, the remaining leg fabric was used to make rag rugs. The denim fabric is shredded and then tightly woven to form an amazingly textured piece. With this, they’ve made a small run of the rugs in two different sizes: 140 x 70 cm and 240 x 170 cm.
Just as Japanese boro, these pieces are unique in-and-of themselves and each one is distinct from the next. Available now for $299 – $899 on their website.
