Special Collaboration: Atelier & Repairs x Candiani Denim Store
The Braga Tuta is made exclusively for the Candiani Denim Store. This piece is Atelier & Repair’s standard-issue “suit” and coverall based on a U.S. Army-style coverall. This coverall has oversized patch pockets with angled entry to allow for easier access and belt loops at the waist to allow for adjustability.
Fabric: This garment is made with Candiani’s 80th Anniversary Re-Gen fabric, SK6262 K-Old Recycled. The Re-Gen fabric is winner of the ITMA 2019 Sustainable Innovation Award. This fabric is composed of 50% Refibra™ (recycled cellulose fibers) and 50% recycled cotton from Candiani’s mill. It is dyed with Candiani’s Indigo Juice® Technology and sized with Kitotex®, a natural polymer that replaces conventional chemicals and grants a significant reduction of the water and energy used in the process.
Atelier & Repairs, founded by Maurizio Donadi, is a design-driven product and services platform dedicated to circularity. They approach design from the perspective of sustaining a product through many lives by utilizing intentionally selected leftover and sustainably made textiles while manufacturing with as little environmental impact as possible.
Their mission is to establish a new world standard of infinite reuse by reducing excess at both artisanal and industrial levels.
