The Home Interiors Company Dabbling in Up-cycled Denim

Join Sourcing Journal on March 13th HKT for Sourcing Summit Hong Kong for discussions on mending relationships between supply chain partners, remaking factories for smaller MOQs and faster turns, and creating resilience to survive the next inevitable crisis.

German up-cycling interior products company LPJ Studios made its foray into fashion at Bluezone in Munich, Germany on Tuesday.

The company, best known for high-end rugs and pillows made from scrap fabric, collaborated with seven fashion students from AMD Akademie Moda and Design in Munich to develop upcycled garments for specific occupations.

A brand rep told RIVET the collaboration is a unique way for LPJ to dabble in apparel and share its sustainable message.

Designs include a miner’s uniform inspired by photographs of 19th century working class, a doctor’s coat with bleached-out denim and quilted arms and a gardener’s jacket with a bright green collar, floral embroidery and whimsical swirl stitching.

The final products are on display at Bluezone at Munich Fabric Start until Sept. 7.
