Unique Bleeding Indigo Styles Made From Old Garments
Bleeding Indigo is a Dutch initiative by Alain and Bartel that both share a strong passion for Japanese and American heritage. Together they upcycle old pairs of jeans and jackets with unique vintage fabrics. The outcome are unique handmade patchwork and Sashiko stitched styles. Even the Japanese Boro technique is used to give these vintage pieces a second life.
Workwear Style With Different Indigo Tones
The Type Zero jacket by Bleeding Indigo is made from multiple vintage French Chore jackets. The outcome is a workwear jacket style with a patchwork of different indigo tones, from faded light blue to darker tones. It features front pleats, two lower pockets, a back cinch, repairs, and rivets.
Made By Hand In The Netherlands
The Bleeding Indigo jacket is made by hand in The Netherlands and is another example of their upcycling approach to give old worn items a second life.
