Highlands Foundry X Salt + Still Collaboration
This piece was created in collaboration with another talented maker Salt + Still. This Haori style jacket was made using vintage natural hand woven mud cloth from Mali, West Africa. The fabric is a soft cotton yarn that was handwoven into narrow strips of cloth and then handstitched together. The cloth has a beautiful natural slub texture to it and is in amazing condition. After designing and sewing the jacket, Salt + Still took vintage cotton cloth and hand dyed pieces in cutch, pomegranite and indigo natural dyes. These pieces were then made into an amazing patchwork motif for the back of the jacket and also a patchwork pattern for the front band of the jacket. The colors for this patchwork were inspired by the Mojave Desert in CA and especially the Joshua Tree Park.
The jacket is a relaxed fit based off of a vintage Japanese Haori jacket. This is a one size fits all style and truly a one of a kind piece.
