Upcycling the upcycled

Since 2019, Jouten has focused on repurposing hotel textiles into handmade one of one terry garments. Hotel textiles circulated by the Finnish textile service company Comforta are processed by Jouten as a part of an ongoing material partnership grounded in circularity. Jouten’s garment production from dyeing to sewing takes place in Helsinki.

Jouten SS22 Capsule 01 collection of patchwork terry garments made of repurposed hotel towels and bed linen is displayed exclusively at the Amos Rex Shop in the summer of 2022. The collection is characterized by an additive sewing technique and created from the cutting waste accumulated from the production of previous collections ovet the past years.

Together, the leftover fabrics from Jouten’s past collections from 2020 and 2021, evolve into a new ensemble of colors and shapes – upcycling yet again the once upcycled fabrics into the next phase of their extended lifecycle. Where the journey of these fabrics continues from there, is up to you.

About Jouten

Jouten is a lifestyle brand and an experimental design studio inspired by repurposing premium textiles based in Helsinki, Finland. Founded in 2016 and run by designer duo Emmi Lonka and Eljas Pajamies, Jouten shifts perspectives through contemporary comfort living.

Sparked by the idea of creativity emerging from admitted boredom, Jouten is focused on appreciating endless novelty in everyday ordinariness. The outcome is defined by Emmi and Eljas’ fascination with upcycling conventional and ostensibly boring materials for intriguing repurposed use.

In the summer of 2022, Jouten journeys through several varied capsule collections launched offline and online. All products are handmade in Helsinki with the closest attention to detail in material, fit, and fabrication.

The gap between mundaneness and shifted perspectives could be anything from a blink of an eye to a leap of faith from one mountain to another. That gap is where Jouten happens – the easing bridge from changed attitudes to renewed perspectives towards everyday life right under our noses.
