Do I need to get my own jacket?
I recommend clients to send over their own jackets. That way you can make sure the jacket fits and are happy with the make. Whether the jacket is old or new is up to your discretion. The only important factor is that the item needs to be denim or over 80% cotton - otherwise the paints might not stick! (if you prefer a leather jacket please get in touch as these require specific treatment + paints).
If you would like myself to scout a jacket for you, this can be done with an added fee. As a brand I make the effort to stay as sustainable as possible. Therefore any jackets I source will always be second hand or vintage.
Scouting jackets prolongs the process a tad, as I keep in touch with clients while searching for the right item! Making sure to find the right style and size takes time sometimes, so please keep that in mind.
Do you only paint on jackets, or can I commission something else?
You can absolutely commission anything you'd like! From bags to jeans and overalls to cushions - as long as its denim or over 80% cotton - anything is possible!
If you are unsure whether an item is customisable, or you have a particular request, don't hesistate to get in touch!
How do I clean and care for my jacket?
The paints used are made for fabric and are waterproof. Each jacket is also sprayed with weatherproof spray - so you can happily wear them out and about no matter the season!
Due to the handmade nature of the items, slight fading as the jacket softens with wear can be expected. Although do I recommend storing your jacket away from exposure to sunlight.
To clean - HAND WASH & DRY CLEAN ONLY.
How long does it take?
Depending on how much work needs to be put in (and whether I am sourcing the jacket), customising can take anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks.
I like to think of customising as a collaboration between the client and myself :) . Therefore I encourage clients to be as specific as possible about what they would like upfront, so we don't come across any errors during the process.
In general the time it takes to paint a jacket are as follows (not including sourcing or shipping time):
(back, front + sleeves)
FRONT AND BACK
2 to 3 weeks
Smaller jobs can be done much quicker, and I will always let you know if that's the case :)
What about pricing?
Just like with timing, pricing depends on the amount of work a jacket requires. The prices below are an estimate for the painting:
(back, front & sleeves)
FRONT AND BACK
(this fee is purely to cover jacket cost + time)
Bear in mind a deposit of 50% of the total is required before a jacket is sourced by myself or 25% once I have received your own jacket through mail.
