Description

The Jacket

Here is the first Lena Klar Jacket! A piece inspired by The American aviator, author, and women’s rights activist: Amelia Earhart. I designed this jacket to represent her intrepidity, and to inspire you to be intrepid yourself when wearing it! Be ready to become an invincible and fearless soul! The Amelia jacket is quilted with a gorgeous Herringbone pattern. It is short, to be worn with our DIANE trousers, high-waist trousers, jeans or skirt. It is a real sewing jewel that requires few hours of concentration and real savoir-faire. It is lined with a soft cotton veil.

 

The Jacket is made from tweed, a luxurious, soft, ethical, and sustainable Pure Wool from the famous English house Abraham Moon & Sons. Founded in 1837, Abraham Moon & Sons is recognized as one of the last remaining vertical woolen mills in Great Britain.

 

This piece of exceptional quality will allow your jacket to travel throughout the years in peace and so to be passed down to your daughters, nieces, sisters… For a new life!

 

The Amelia Jacket is sewn by Claudia, our exceptional seamstresses, with quality and durability in mind. Honoring our commitment to sustainability and ethically sourced materials, all our garments are made using high-quality leftover fabrics from larger couture houses.

* Ninn is 5ft10 and wearing the S.

Care advice

1. Always put your tweed piece back on a hanger when you remove it. It prevents it from deforming and wrinkling. If the tweed is slightly wrinkled, the first step is to leave it on a hanger for 24 or 48 hours so that it will naturally straighten. Then you can iron it with an iron at a very low temperature, using a press cloth to protect the tweed.

2. Steaming: This practice provides the safest and gentlest finish and freshening for woolens. Steaming reduces wrinkling and kills most germs and bacteria, helping eliminate odors. If the item isn’t actually dirty, you don’t need to take it to the dry cleaners. Instead, save money and reduce wear on an item from the cleaner by steaming it at home.

3. If the jacket has spots, you can try to remove them with a little lukewarm water and Marseille soap. Do not use hot water because tweed is wool, and wool does not like it!

4. if your jacket is too stained, bring it to the dry cleaner, this will allow you to keep them in good condition.

Consider eco dry cleaning: typical dry cleaning uses a large amount of water and chemicals that are harmful to our environment.
