A small batch of one-of-a-kind Kantha Jackets was launched at 12:00 GMT on Wednesday 02.03.22, on a first come, first served basis.
The Universal Works "Kantha" collection is a first-class recycling project where layers of history have been brought together to form comfortable Universal Works classics. Made in the well-known Bakers Jacket and Kyoto Work Jacket styles, it's an opportunity for you to own one of our iconic styles safe in the knowledge that it's the only one on the planet.
Here at Universal Works, we love the possibility of re-using these incredible old pieces of fabric and breathing new life into them by making something totally original. With all this excitement, our Kantha Collections have been on tour, traveling around the world from Merci Paris to Uncle Otis in Toronto and most recently at our partnership store in Berlin.
A limited run of only 21 jackets are available in this drop. All completely unique and made entirely from carefully hand-picked vintage saris. Last time they quite literally sold out in minutes, so if you think you may like to own a truly unique, one-off Universal Works creation; block out the time in your calendar, set reminders on your phone, and cancel all other appointments. You have been warned. :)
