This black denim jacket is full of surprises. There’s the upside down Kikkoman label on the back, the tan leather fringes on the shoulders, and the sleeves full of green and blue flowers. All of those pieces and other parts of the jacket are hand embroidered with a beautiful tone of red which creates a rich contrast on the black denim. Frayed edges.
Each piece is one-of-a-kind, designed in my studio in Miami, and hand embroidered by single moms in Medellin, Colombia.
Embroidered by: Ana Maria Ochoa
