Upcycled Mt. Rainier/PNW Jacket

$135.00 Sold out

 This thrifted Saddle King Western denim jacket features a cyanotype print of Mt. Rainier and plants/florals local to the PNW. Jacket is lined with a thick fabric. Beige corduroy collar. 

Please note that as this is a thrifted and upcycled item, it may have small imperfections from use in a previous life. Any major marks will be noted with photos.

**This jacket does have some kind of yellow stains. I've included photos of them - the jacket has been washed multiple times, but they do not come off. 

Jacket measurements are:

Shoulders - 22.5"
Back - 24"
1/2 Chest - 26.5"
Sleeve length - 25"


Taking care of a cyanotype print requires unique care in order to preserve its color, contrast, and brightness. 

- Limit washing at all. If you need to wash, hand wash in COLD water only, hang to dry. If you must use soap, use a non-phosphate detergent. I use Foca Phosphate-Free Laundry Detergent.

- Sweat and hand oils may cause discoloration.

 - Cyanotype prints are archival, meaning they are meant to last for years (50-100+ years.) However, yellowing or fading may occur if prints are exposed to phosphates, high pH solutions, baking soda, washing soda, bleach, or alkalines.

 - Cyanotypes can also fade due to strong, direct, long sunlight exposure (basically, don’t leave your prints outside in the direct sun for days or weeks and you should be fine).

 - If you find yourself having to wash your jacket more frequently, soaking your jacket or item in cold water with a bit of hydrogen peroxide diluted in it can help bring a pop of life back into the print. Please wring out the water as much as possible and hang to dry.
