Item is a Reclaimed & Revitalized piece of Den Wall Design Lab which means it was sourced second hand then altered and or re-designed into a new and fresh piece. Taking inspiration from a couple of my favorite high end grunge/rock clothing brands, these have been transformed into a fun edgy piece to wear as is or as a layering piece.
When looking for second hand items I try and save ones that may otherwise be on their way to a land fill due to "flaws" or perhaps being an outdated appearance and give them a new and extended life. Some items like this hoodie had a fun creative process in the deconstruction and reconstruction process which was documented on my Instagram! @denwalldesignlab
See story on these hoodies below in Item Details.

These hoodies were originally sourced in a second hand clothing outlet. No one was paying them any attention because there were ink splatters on them. I have two theories to their "flaws". One is perhaps they were used on a film set as part of a wardrobe: they were all the same size, had similar ink splatters and I picked these up in L.A. Two is perhaps in the screen printing process there was a mishap with the inking application and they became damaged. In any case they were structurally in great condition were an amazing color and I immediately knew how I wanted to bring these hoodies back to life. Otherwise their next destination may have been a landfill. :(
The original hoodies as sourced were missing drawstrings. I've added preshrunk cotton drawstring chord and added gold cord caps to the end for a polished off look.
