Hand-made, hand-destroyed, torn and shredded. Make every item unique. Show the torn edges, and the body beneath. Layered pigmented textures, nubby yarns and drawn threads create added texture. Deconstructed frayed jeans combined with a frayed artisan scarf edge is a feature - a scarf for the legs. No longer is ripping and shredding regarded as ugly or tatty, it is now an artistic creative take on the worn-in appeal of the jean. The DIY jean makes a personal lasting statement in a world of fast "off the shelf" fashion.
