The story about Jacket Duo


This jacket is the result of cooperation between mother and son. A six-year-old as the matter of fact, who had his own very specific ideas to a jacket. And who was persistent to have his favorite superheroes as motifs on the jacket. His mother asked him to show what he wanted them to look like in a chart, and the six-year-old did so.


Both mother and son enjoyed sharing the ideas for choice of colours and to work together. And both were happy with the result.
