MONTRÉAL — Sustainable fashion brand jeane & jax has unveiled a vegan leather bomber jacket for their fall/winter 2021-2022 collection.

The limited edition jacket, named “BLAKE” is crafted in Montréal from upcycled aviation textiles donated by Ultrafabrics, an animal-free performance fabric manufacturer with a donation program. The polyurethane fabric, which was originally produced to line the interior of aviation spaces gives the vegan leather a comfortable fit.

Following the success of last year’s limited edition moto jacket, which was made from leftover luxury car interior fabric, the launch of the “BLAKE” jacket represents a continuation of jean & jax’s resiliency and values.

jeane & jax, headed by founder and creative designer Silvia Jeane Gallo, has always purportedly been focused on sustainable fashion. The brand is committed to redefining the term “luxury fashion” by combining timeless style and thoughtful, waste-free practices.
