Just patched up this dingy, stained old pair of Levi’s shorts with one of the Gudetama repair patches we’re selling starting tomorrow at our store and @sanriojapanesevillage. Come listen to a talk on #sustainablefashion tomorrow at 11:30 at the Sanrio store. And if you want to learn this mending technique based on Japanese #sashiko we will be teaching classes on Sunday at 11am and 1pm at our shop! DM or call to reserve your space! #eastwestshop #sanrio #gudetama #remadeinla #sustainablefashion #slowfashion #handrepair #mending #handsewn #levis #vintage
Maybe it’s all the @gudetama gear we’ve been working on but we’re obsessing over everything yellow these days! We’ve got another size runs of our almost sold out crop tops now in the shop in this awesome mustard color. Our crop tops are sustainably made out of leftover fabrics. And the trousers are vintage corduroys dyed to cover up the dingy color they were before! 💛♻️ 📷: shot on expired 35mm film by @slimsreturn #sustainablefashion #remadeinla #eastwestshop #eastweststuff #vintage #yellow
An assortment of @gudetama patches freshly hand printed. We will be releasing these patches and more this Saturday @sanriojapanesevillage and at our store. This Sunday we will host 1 hour Sashiko mending classes at 11 and 1 here at our shop. Sunday’s Earth Day classes are free with purchase of patches and supplies. DM to register. Class size is limited! More classes TBA at the Sanrio store next weekend too! Time to learn a new sustainable skill!! #gudetama #sanrio #sanriojapanesevillage #eastwestshop #sashiko #patch #patchmending #sustainablefashion #slowfashion

Did you know only 20% if you donate actually sells in the donation shops? This is a bale of shirts. Some as new as 2018 that were smooshed together I to a 1,000 lb bale and were sold to a rag house to be cut into rags for industrial cleanup (and to be sent to the landfill after that). Some of these are new from 2018. Some are really old. We looked through every single shirt to find out what we could salvage. We washed them and they’re ready for new homes! Posting these shirts in stories today... Stop by and pick one up! Open till 5 today and we’re open late tomorrow night for First Thursday! #sustainablefashion #eastwestshop #slowfashion #vintage #tshirts
😍 One of our most talented customers @jamiethedrake performed this weekend at the Jerry Garcia tribute @theatre_acedtla. And she wore a skirt I natural dyed years ago and just recently re-found. And an overdyed bodysuit. 🖤 Fully repurposed and sustainable. I think Jerry would be proud. Keep your ears out for this one! Swipe for a video! #eastwestshop #sustainablefashion #eastweststuff #naturaldye #indigo #slowfashion #jamiedrake #jerrygarcia #gratefuldead
