Are you still holding on to old jeans that don’t fit you any more? Are you hording away several pairs of boot cut jeans in the hope that might just come back into fashion?
Sisters Eveline and Marianne Maat of By Mölle have bought a whole new meaning to the words ‘old blue jeans’ by literally turning rags into riches in creating a soft furnishings line made from recycled and re-spun denim fabrics.
Working with European weavers and craftsmen, these industrious Dutch sisters produce limited editions of woolen blankets, throws of recycled denims and pure linens, and blankets and cushions to boot. Taking soft, well worn and much loved denim and removing all the hardware of buttons and zips, the fibres are spun into soft yarns that are definitely comfortable but also eco-friendly and certifiably unique.
…a whole new meaning to wrapping yourself in your memories we say.
