Vintage reworked folk jacket

£120.00

Stunning vintage wool traditional European folk jacket. The jacket itself was in a pretty poor state and has been repaired and brought back to life. The ornate trimmings were coming away and lost so have been mended and replaced with similar pieces from Morocco, India and Greece. The beautiful white dove was a vintage polish tapestry acquired on my travels and looks so beautiful like it was meant to be there.

The balloon sleeves were made from a vintage Indian block print throw and give it a light and romantic touch enhancing the bolero shape of the body.

Totally unique and one off and a piece of clothing history.

Size XS/S

Shoulder to shoulder 39cm

Neck to hem 45cm

Chest 45cm

DRY CLEAN ONLY

Handmade by Hannah @ EL HOBO

Handmade one off unique items made from used & vintage textiles.
All materials are carefully sourced secondhand by myself including cottons, zips, buttons etc. I design and make every item so it is totally unique.
The vintage textiles I use can have flaws, fading etc which I like to incorporate into the design for a natural lived in look. EL HOBO clothes are predominantly about the patina.

Care instructions

All EL HOBO clothes are better if hand washed in cool/warm water with care and a soft detergent like woolite. Spot clean where necessary and hang up to air. Never put in with heavily coloured items and always wash separately. Vintage items can be machine washed depending on washing instructions if their are any. If in doubt hand wash. Jackets and coats can be spot cleaned, suede or leather usually needs dry cleaning.
