Upcycled Boro waistcoat
Patchwork reversible jacket in earthy tones made with upcycle fabrics. Each piece is available in a single edition with no 2 pieces looking the same. Each jacket is reversible wherein you can reverse and wear the underside too.
Please note : Since this product is part of our Upcycle series, no 2 pieces will have the same patches. But they will come in the same colour story.
We follow the concept of BORO in the studio. The Japanese term “Boro” loosely means ‘too good to waste’. Ever since the brand ‘Paromita Banerjee’ was conceived in 2009, we never threw away any of our waste fabrics, each of which were either handwoven or handprinted or hand-dyed by our artisans. The simple idea started with the fact that since we make our own fabrics and we see our sketches being conceived into fabric yardages, by our weaver clusters, most times it becomes too sentimental to throw them away. It was a decision to reduce waste and utilize the remnants of our past collections and fabrics to make newer products.
Length of the waistcoat : 24 inches
