Levi's® Artisan Blanket Collection LevisArtisanBlanket-SS13-01.jpg

Levi’s® e-mails in my Inbox are like a continuing suspense-filled reality show! Every time I open one I am facing another story, another creation and I can never tell what’s gonna be next! LOL, please Levi’s® continue doing this as you are the highlight of my Inbox YAY!

This time, after the Levis water and then the waste collections, now they have come up with the idea to use recycled blankets for manufacturing jeans, let me call these the “cover>up” jeans!

The line consists of some really beautiful one-of-a-kind women’s items created from handcrafted, quilted artisan blankets. Pieces of vintage blankets from India are interwoven with modern twills and chambrays and then over-dyed in indigo. Each garment tells a unique story, incorporating different patterns and textures so that no two are exactly alike.

The limited edition collection hits select Levi’s® Stores and Levi.com this week and consists of a woven shirt, cropped pants, shift dress and reversible vest. These styles range in price from $148 to $198.
