African Mud Cloth Vest | Fortela + Manready MercantileFortela + Manready Mercantile
All the Fortela vests are made out of vintage and recycled materials such as old military tents, Irish Tweed, military mattresses, Field Jackets, African Mud Cloth, Japanese Boro, and US Mailbags.
The beauty of Fortela lies in the research into fine vintage fabrics that are brought to life by expert craftsmen who know how to preserve the soul of these materials.
Fortela is a concept, a vision of the past that becomes a statement of today…
The vests are embellished with special buttons purchased at Vintage flea markets.
The man who wears Fortela can boast about being one of the few owning a true work of art, a unique garment that defines a strong personality.
This is the first collaboration that Fortela has ever done and we are honored to have them exclusively at Manready Mercantile.
*Each vest is one-of-a-kind and no two alike*
