Latin American Embroidery Artist Covers Denim Jackets in Colombia’s Colorful Flora

Custom Embroidered Jackets by Ana Maria Restrepo Amarpo

Denim jackets have been a wardrobe staple ever since they were popularized by silver screen stars such as James Dean and Steve McQueen in the 1950s. Today’s jean jackets come in a number of different styles and colors, but Colombian textile designer Ana Maria Restrepo (of Amarpo) adds personality to the simple garment by customizing them with colorful embroidery.

Inspired by her Latin American roots, Restrepo’s upcycled garments celebrate the colorful beauty of Colombia’s nature. She uses a combination of embroidery and crochet to hand-stitch colorful florals and other nature-inspired motifs to the shoulders, arms, backs, and fronts of each jacket. Each statement piece is just like a wearable piece of art and allows wearers to show off their unique style.
