In preparation for the upcoming season of our upcycled jackets, we’ve dedicated the month October to reorganize our warehouse, brimming with vintage wool blankets. Our goal is to ensure fresh, high-quality materials for your made-to-order jackets. Did you know that each upcycled jackets is meticulously crafted at our own Manufacturing Studio in Arnhem, the Netherlands?
At Hul le Kes, our commitment to sustainability begins with the materials we use. Both the Cremer Jacket and Monet Jacket are crafted from vintage blankets that we either discover through our recycling partners or are generously donated by individuals tidying up their family homes, often belonging to grandparents or parents. These blankets serve as the canvas for our Cremer and Monet Jackets, as well as our other creations, like the Frank Pillows.
The beauty of our Cremer and Monet Jackets lies in their versatile fit. They share a slightly boxy silhouette that’s equally appealing to both men and women. This design ensures comfort and style for all.
The primary difference between the two jackets lies in their distinct features:
Cremer Jacket: This jacket boasts a classic collar and a higher front closure, giving it an elegant and formal look. Ideal for those looking for a refined outerwear option.
Monet Jacket: In contrast, the Monet Jacket is collarless and offers a cardigan-style closure. This unique design makes it a versatile piece that can be worn as an undercoat or as a comfortable choice for relaxing at home or during those crisp late-evening moments on your veranda.
Whether you’re drawn to the timeless sophistication of the Cremer Jacket or the cozy, laid-back feel of the Monet Jacket, your choice will reflect your individual style and preferences. Whichever you choose, you’re not only acquiring a jacket but a piece of history and a step towards sustainable fashion.
Explore the unique character of the Cremer and Monet Jackets by Hul le Kes and embark on a journey that combines artistry, sustainability, and your distinctive taste.
Did you think that was all? Then you are mistaken because you can also send us your all time favorite or childhood blanket and we make a your personal Cremer or Monet Jacket with it.
