Vans' Patchwork Pack Shows Beauty in Imperfection

Date: May 25 2018

Vans' latest pack sees a Sk8-Hi and Authentic stitched together to reference Japan’s traditional ‘boro’ method. Characterised by the overlapping of textiles with thick stitch-work, the practice popped up in the 19th century and has since re-emerged in high fashion.

As the technique lends itself particularly well to denim, Vans have pieced the classic indigo fibre together with rugged canvas and left the stitching bare to show beauty in imperfection.
