Jämä Circle Skirt
Keep calm and twirl like there's no tomorrow! Here's an official, modern circle skirt that you can wear every day and to party-parties, too! Pockets? -Two of them!
- Full-circle pattern for a voluptous hem
- Pockets. On both sides. Proper large ones!
- Durable and comfy materials
We got our working hands on some old uniform fabric. They had such a nice drape to them that we saw little options but to make some circle skirts. The diagonal fabric has an official feel to it, but the playful form clears any doubts as to whether you're actually checking the parking meters.
We've had some surplus uniform skirts before, but the availability was poor, the sizing random and we wanted to play with various patterns to avoid being too serious.
Too many clothes made for women have fake pockets, none at all or just very small ones. That sucks! Why did we differ from the norm? Because we know pockets are good. These are designed to be smartphone-friendly, too.
Designed with a body-friendly pattern. The suggested wear height is at the true waist (the most narrow part of your torso). Zipper closure and snap-fastener in the back.
Colours and materials
Diagonal wool-polyester mix.
The Green material is very slightly thinner, but drapes really well. Due to the wool content, any wrinkling can be taken care of by hanging the skirt in the washroom after taking a shower.
The Blue material is virtually carefree and the heft makes you want to throw it around.
The Dark Blue material is very surprisingly darker but also feels a slight bit coarser.
The Black skirt is for witches.
The Pinstripe is 100 % luxury wool as found on men's suits. Drapes really well and has a matte shine to it. A bit pricier but that's the way the cookie crumbles!
The waists are snug. If you are normally between sizes, consider the larger one.

Jämä is upcycled surplus
Jämä is a Finnish word meaning leftovers or scraps. It’s also one of our house brands for equipment made from recycled or surplus materials. From time to time we accumulate stuff that doesn't sell well but is made out of outstanding materials. We've also got several capable seamstresses here, and the equation is pretty clear: cut that useless stuff apart and sew it back together to create something useful.
Because Finnish labour is one of the most expensive in the world, these are very simple, practical and rugged in design. Our development and prototype production remains in-house while most of the production is outsourced to Turku - still within Finland. Simplicity means strength: the fewer parts there are, the smaller the chance of breaking anything.
