100% Recycled Fabrics • Unique in Colour and Print • Ethically Handmade • Eco-friendly • Vegan Materials
"Yūgen (幽玄) is an important concept in traditional Japanese aesthetics: an awareness of the universe that triggers an emotional response too deep and powerful for words. "
This versatile little jacket has a way of making you look cute yet classy while you're in the midst of running errands or dancing the night away.
Yügen rocks an asian collar and has cute coconut buttons which are visible when you wear the jacket open, and invisible when you close it.
On the outside of Yügen you'll find a colourful vintage sari, which is our favourite material to repurpose, and we’ve lined it with another repurposed fabric on the inside; something cool that we've found during our adventures salvaging forgotten materials: old curtains, rejected bedsheets, epic scarves or this cool waste material we collect from blockprinting ateliers.
All this cool stuff that, with a bit of love and effort, can be turned into the coolest jacket: Yūgen. And so, can go on to live a whole new life.
This is a unique free size item that fits all sizes between XXS and M. You can find 'Yūgen' in different sizes here.
All our clothing are brilliant free sizes, we spend a lot of time and thought into making them so they fit bodies in as many shapes and sizes as possible. We're really quite proud of our designs, and we hope you'll love wearing them.
Unique clothing - only one piece like this in the world!
Uma Nomad is a sustainable fashion brand and we make our clothing only from vintage and second-hand fabrics. Because we can only make 1 piece out of every fabric we repurpose, all our clothing is truly unique in colour and print.
Repurposing and upcycling old fabrics is an eco-friendly move, as new fabrics don’t have to be manufactured and by reusing these beautiful discarded materials they don’t end up in landfill. Besides that we make all our clothing on solar power, we have a zero waste policy, and more! If you'd like to read more about our Ethical and Sustainable business practices, do have a look here!
(Almost) every day a new collection of unique pieces:
Our clothing is unique, and they go fast! So we (try to) post a brand new collection of clothing in unique colours and designs on our website, every day of the week.
Viscose or Rayon and recycled cotton
Because this garment is made from recycled vintage and second hand fabrics that we collect from all over the world, it's really hard to decide the exact composition of every fabric we repurpose. We hope you can forgive us for this. Having said that, most of the fabrics we use are either Viscose or Rayon.
We only select the most beautiful and comfortable feeling materials. - After all these years we've gotten really good at this!
