The Rib Tube Top's story begins in Brooklyn, NYC. Every piece of fabric is chosen by Jasmine James, the founder of JJ Vintage, who carefully selects vintage, deadstock, and natural fibers from various US-based suppliers. When sourcing materials, Jasmine prioritizes quality and longevity, always certain to avoid fabrics derived from plastic. Once the material is sourced, it is transported to Jasmine’s apartment in Brooklyn where the production process begins. Every top is handmade by Jasmine in her studio to ensure the utmost quality and add originality to make the most elevated basics. By creating one-of-one reworked pieces, Jasmine directly combats waste while producing this top. With every handmade top, Jasmine has complete control over the production process, localizing her label, while reintroducing the concept of slow fashion to her community. Once your top is completed it is packaged in a recycled newspaper mailer, dropped off at a shipment center, and transported straight to you. This top has lived in 1 country, given new life to a discarded piece of fabric, and traveled hundreds of miles to earn a permanent spot in your wardrobe. We hope you love this top and wear it with pride, knowing that you are embodying fashion and choosing to better the planet with your conscious shopping choice.
