AG’s New Drop Spotlights Seventh-Generation Weavers 

AG launched the Chimayó collection, a special collaboration with Irvin and Lisa Trujillo, seventh-generation weavers in New Mexico.

Inspired by Northern New Mexico’s landscapes and the Rió Grande river, the collection offers “extremely limited” men’s and women’s jean jackets with traditional handcrafted Chimayó woven paneling at the back.

AG tapped the award-winning husband-and-wife team to boil, process, spin and dye the yarn from Churro sheep, a breed that arrived in New Mexico with Francisco Vázquez de Coronado’s expedition in 1540. AG said the “hardy sheep” are known for their silky, lustrous wool. 

The Trujillos then weaved the colorful yarns into designs that pay homage to New Mexico’s history in sheepherding, spinning and weaving.

“The collection honors the heritage and labor-intensive process, making for a truly special offering. Vibrant colors and geometric shapes appear to dance, conveying a motion that celebrates the traditional craft, one that is centuries old and passed down through generations,” the brand stated.

The black and indigo jackets are made with 100 percent cotton and are assembled in the U.S. The collection retails for $650-$685.

The jackets complement AG’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection inspired by the American Southwest. Design elements speak to the rugged and casual nature of the region with destructed denim, patched pockets, indigo blocking, lightweight chambray and ikat prints.

It also includes vegan leather bottoms, nylon anoraks, and 100 percent lyocell coordinates.
