Monkee Genes create superior denim and apparel, carefully sourced and made with conscience.
In 2006 Monkee Genes was born, launching a small denim collection built to offer something fresh to an already saturated and disposable denim market.
This week we are looking at upcycling, and how we can bring new life or add personality to our wardrobe.
Whether it’s giving your old jeans a new lease of life or customising a new pair to suit your personality, upcycling reduces the need for new raw materials and encourages creativity. Sometimes your clothes just need a little TLC – so before you bid adieu to your unworn or unwanted jeans, try your hand at a new skill!
Part 1 of our upcycle & customise project sees our collaboration with Rebecca Torres-Sherrington, founder of @designxstitch, who has been working her magic on our Libby jeans! The fun abstract design combined with the straight leg Libby Jean gives a vintage feel and the rigid denim is the perfect base for stitching! Check out more of our rigid denim styles below.
