Vintage Afghan Handmade Sheepskin Embroidered Coat


Amazing, genuine and authentic vintage 60's shearling coat. Afghan style and entirely handmade. Full fur interior is possibly yak fur with genuine Tibetan or Mongolian lamb fur trim throughout. Bohemian floral details and the intricate designs have all been hand embroidered. Super cozy and warm. We could see Janis Joplin wearing this dream coat and of course miss Penny Lane herself.
Things to note: This sheepskin coat is vintage and being sold as such. It has had a life long ago, almost 70 years ago and it does show its age overall, which we feel really adds to the character. Due to age, there was an area on the front of the coat that had worn so thin, that it required a patch, however, even with this repair, the suede had still worn through to a tear. We had it repaired as best as possible, however, that area, which is quite "hidden" by the fur trimming is still incredible delicate and we cannot guarantee nor promise that this will not need repair again in the future. There are also two, small repairs on the shoulder as well. Overall, the rest of the coat appears to be very solid in structure as both the exterior and interior fur are very soft and the coat itself simply drapes over the body so beautifully. There are no other major issues to note. However, please keep in mind, this is a vintage piece of art and must be treated as such. It has been very well loved in the past.
