East/West is another brand I ran into at West Coast Craft in San Francisco this past November. This recycled denim kimono jacket ($240) caught my eye, and it very much feels like the one that got away (luckily they sell online).
Each one is made from four pairs of vintage Levi’s jeans, so no two are alike. It’s also unisex, and modeled after vintage kimono designs.
Also check out the brand’s repaired denim jacket ($200) and the rest of their sustainable designs including shoes, tops and jackets.
