Natali Upcycled Patchwork Hooded Kimono Wrap - Reborn Project

You're investing in upcycling
A reborn piece, where we saved unwanted fabric scraps from landfill waste and turned them into upcycled reversible patchwork for this hooded kimono wrap - vibrant, off-beat and supremely comfy (think you're wearing your blanket outside the house). To do our bit for the environment, we work with Balinese mothers who are skilled patchworkers to give once-discarded items a second life while helping the mothers make a living. Upcycling presents the opportunity for disruption, inspiring us to find beauty in trash, and meaning in what was once old. Patchwork is intricate to make so we keep it one-of-a-kind pieces for those of us who are desperate to do things differently.

A Love Story of Giving
All Natali wants is for her fabric scraps to have a second purpose. In January 2020, we got a sweet surprise call from Natali who inherited her family's garment workshop in Bali. It was Love Stories' turn to receive her gift of fabric scraps. Every year, Natali donates her workshop's annual collection of scraps to one socially-conscious organization so they can reuse the scraps for a social cause.
