This denim kimono is perfect for a cold day in the autumn. Wear it when you go shoping, during holiday's or dressed up as a jacket on a nice trouwser and heals. The kimono is made of old jeans. Ofcourse the jeans are firmly cleanedit is a one of a kind item, ethical, sustainable and fits in a circulair economy.
The kimono fits perfect because the sholder isn't in a straight line. The kimono has two pockets and closes with a belt. The last two pictures are from an other kimono (size s/m) and are used to show how the kimono fits. It is so much fun to make these kimono's depending on the size and model of the jeans i need about 4 tot 6 jeans. First i sort the jeans by colour and cut out the pieces i need.
Some pieces need to be mended. I like it when you can see the jeans had a rough live, but the jacket needs to be warm, so no holes. (and i like repaird jeans ;-) than i puzzle all the bits an pieces together till it becomes a kimono.

Within the garment industry women are concentrated in unskilled, low-paid, precarious and often casual or informal work, including home-based work. Their work, even when skilled, is undervalued or unrecognised, and few workers have access to decent working conditions or training. Women workers have little voice and influence in their workplaces.
They are often denied the right to join a union or to organise. The unequal power of women garment workers in relation to men and their employers, both at work and in the community, is at the heart of the injustices and deprivations they experience.
Women garment workers tend to be in a vulnerable position especially if they are young, migrant, or poorly educated. They often work in unsafe and unhealthy conditions. They lack rights at work, including to pregnancy and maternity protection. The long hours typical for garment industry work often come into conflict with women's ability to fulfil the responsibilities they are expected to shoulder in their families and communities.For more information go to the website cleanclothescampaign.
