This black mandarin jacket from Organic is made of eco-friendly Schoeller Blue Sign Technology fabric, which conforms to rigid standards in terms of being environmentally friendly, healthy, and conserving natural resources. Inspiration for this piece came from the cold-weather, quilted underjackets used in the military and the gi, which is worn in judo. With versatility high on its list of attributes, the item can be substituted for a blazer or even worn for formal occasions. A modern-day Mao jacket, this piece, which retails for $495, also features recycled horn buttons and is self-lined.
