If you’re up this morning with your cup of coffee and want an engaging read, check out the About Us page for Atelier & Repairs. The brand seeks first and foremost to eliminate waste in an industry that pollutes the planet like it’s going out of style. Their mission statement is this “to go out of business, leaving behind a planet without waste.” Cool, right?
Thankfully, the clothes from Atelier & Repairs are just as cool as their mission, especially the Sacco Kimono. The kimono, should you choose to buy it, will be exclusive to you. The brand found these vintage kendo jackets to which they’ve added workwear-style pockets using material from found and excess American and Japanese fabrics. This means that each kimono is totally unique and if you think about it, by buying one, you’re basically saving the world a little.
For the upcycling heroes among us, the Sacco Kimono is available from Blue in Green for $625.
