We could not have designed the Samurai Kilt without giving it it's very own dedicated top half!  Here we have the cute Samurai Bolero, a crop length cute jacket with straight cut arms and small upright collar.  Worn open for a casual look or use our 4" kilt pin to style your own closed look.  This can be worn with the full Samurai Kilt or your favourite denims and a white team, cool and classic!

Available in the four iconic Element colours and available in the dense tailoring fabric quality which has woven by us in our mill in Scotland.  Also with this design we have flipped some of the fabric panels to mirror what we do in the Samurai Kilt.  You will see the cool contrast and change of direction on the tartan features across the arms, body and collar, zoom and you will see!

We give you more, with access to the full range of options direct from our planet and people first design archives.  These are our bad-ass books of how to always wear your values and look amazing!  See full details below.

Here we proudly share with you our less than x 1 mark-up that we apply, and how this garment has been costed.

Most brands in the 'fashion' world add multipliers of x 2 for wholesale then add another x 2 for retail. When you buy direct from us its a less than x 1, we use the profits from everything we create to support more fairly paid jobs and push the textile world to be more eco-conscious. But we do a lot more like donating to charities and education bodies. This is what we proudly call our ethical pay it forward mark up. For full information on this, check out our full process and pricing page.

The cost breakdown for this garment is;
Fabric Cost £86.63
Labour To Make £52.50
QC, Labelling & Packing £15.00
Overheads (incl insurance, premise costs etc) £30.83
Total Cost To Company £184.95
Ethical Pay It Forward Mark Up After Shipping x 0.38 £70.05

Time to Make : 2.5hrs
Cut 0.5hrs
Overlock 0.5hrs
Assemble 1.25hrs
Trim & Press 0.25hrs

For Cost Per Wear (CPW) we just wanted to share how buying less, paying ethical prices, loving and wearing more is actually really affordable, its all about the number of wears!

You wear the item 3 times a week for the next 3 years (remember that’s as a kilt, cape or dress!), that is 468 wears. The CPW is £255 divided by 468 wears, Cost Per Wear 54p!

It is something the 'fashion' world in particular is really bad at.... but we are bad-ass so nothing to hide under this piece of tartan, nothing bad but maybe an ass!

We want to help be part of the solution that drives regenerative change. Buying less, loving more, paying ethical prices and feeling awesome is what we are all about.

To do that, we have these yes we give a sh#t options for you!
