Women's Denim Patchwork Baba $345
Introducing the i+w x Sabah Denim Patchwork Baba, a collaboration with Nashville-based denim maker, imogene + willie. We created just 140 pairs for this limited edition collaboration -- each pair one-of-a-kind, handmade at the Sabah Workshop in El Paso using recycled denim that has been cut and quilted together by hand to form a patchwork upper. Each piece of denim has been individually chosen from imogene + willie’s treasured archive of jeans, all previously loved by their owners right up until the day they simply could not be worn again.more

Do not machine wash. Avoid getting your Babas wet. If they do get wet, allow them to air dry. No heat should be used. A little soapy water on a soft cloth can be used to spot clean the denim uppers as needed.
As with your favorite pair of jeans, the denim material may fade a bit over time.
Entirely Made in the USA.
The Denim Patchwork Baba is made by hand in our El Paso workshop using a vintage denim patchwork upper. Each piece of denim used has been individually chosen from imogene + willie's treasured archive of jeans, all previously loved by their owners right up until the day they simply could not be worn again. The denim was selected, cut, and quilted together by hand in imogene + willie's tailor shop and then taken to the Sabah Workshop in El Paso, where our shoemakers cut the patchwork to create a denim upper for the shoe. Making a Baba with this denim isn't easy so our most experienced stitcher, Ricardo Sr., stitched each and every pair himself. Finally, like all of our made-in-El-Paso-Babas, our Denim Patchwork Baba is produced using an undyed veg-tanned leather sole and lining leather that promises to age beautifully & form to your feet with wear. This Baba from start to finish is a true work-of-art.
