When designer Jessica Ochoa stepped foot on La Palma she was captivated by the islands natural beauty.
Inspiring herself on the extraordinary volcanic landscapes, the vivid contrast between the dark rough rocks and the turquoise seawater and bright green vegetation, she decided to use her talents in fashion to pay tribute to this enchanting and colorful place.
In the JEKAI studio, everything from the drawing board until the final product is carefully made by hand garment by garment.
Our mission is not only to create a clothing brand, but also to send a message of protection and love towards planet earth. That is our home, and we must take care to keep it alive. Jekai garments are made with ECONYL® REGENERATED NYLON.
Nylon waste, otherwise polluting the Earth, is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon. It's exactly the same as brand new nylon and can be recycled, recreated and remoulded again and again.
The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible.
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as fossil-based nylon.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into yarns and polymers for the fashion and interior industries.
At the end of this process JEKAI garments are made by hand in Canary Islands, Spain.
