Recycled Italian Roma 75 Jacket · Czech M60 Field Jacket

Upycling military surplus is a permanent feature at Maharishi, transforming unwearable items into ready-to-wear garments and reclaiming them as symbols of peace rather than war. Clothing is smudged with herbal incense, blessed, and washed in saffron water to symbolically cleanse it of its military associations.

*Garments with upcycled fabrics may vary from garment to garment, and can appear tonally different to the featured images. Fabrics may also have darning on areas carried out as part of the upcycling process - this will not affect the structural integrity of the item.

Upcycled

Upcycling has been a core value of the Maharishi ethos. Military surplus is recut and repurposed with cord systems, embroidery and auxiliary functions before a cleansing process is carried out by priests in India, to rid the garment of its previous military associations.
