Wovenfree Custom Shop. Bertha Jacquard Braid Jacket. Pictured in acid wash denim. 100% cotton. Relaxed fit.
We start with a brand new premium Levi’s trucker jacket. Then we carefully sew vintage jacquard ribbon into the front yokes. These native patterned jacquards were woven over 50 years ago on the original perforated card looms & remain in Deadstock mint condition. We cut these pieces from the original rolls.
For the Bertha embroidery we inlay nearly 300,000 stitches directly into the back panel. Intensive layered detail with premium thread. Multiple setups. Over a full day in the stitchery. We use a micro sized ‘satin’ stitch to ring out the haunting bone detail. The embroidery takes up nearly the full back panel at 16+ inch height.
Pair it with your favorite jacquard from a treasure chest of Deadstock jacquards we’ve collected. Check out the photo gallery for swatch sheets of the jacquards we have available. You can also pick from a variety of jacket fabrics…
