Material

softshell

I created a bomber jacket made from a softshell material which is waterproof and windproof as well as keeps your body warm in harsh conditions. Perfect for colder days outdoors as well as evening in the city. It's light and soft. The jacket has two pockets in the front and one secret pocket on the left side inside the jacket.

"4000m above the sea level, the invisible sun burns your face while the cold wind plays with your hair. Local communities across the Andes live in the tremendously hard conditions for ages.

LAPHA (Quechua): HAT
Laphas are a unique part of the traditional outfits in the Andes. Not only do they protect women from the harsh sun in the mountains, but most importantly carry crucial information for strangers: origin, civil status - and maybe few secrets that nobody would find out, anyway. LAPHAS."

After working with local communities on LAPHAS project I decided to give it another life. I want these photographs of powerful women to give you strength and superpowers (which they perform on a daily basis high up in the mountains), just simply by letting these piece lay down on your shoulders.

PACHAMAMA: The photograph presents the oldest member of the Chinchero community in the Sacred Valley. The double portray represents the importance, respect, wisdom and her strength.

    I love it! The quality is very good and the print is so unique that everyone asks about it :) I received the package within due time (shipment was from Peru to Poland). Contact with Kasia was very easy - I’m not an easy buyer, so I had a lot of questions about the fabrics and the whole process of production, but she answered quickly, giving me all the details I needed. I highly recommend :)
