Burnt Orange Suzani Coat
Our Cape Coats are all one off pieces that are tailor made in London. We use a combination of antique textiles and modern fabrics. The coat has a scalloped hem and sleeve with a nehru collar.
For this coat we have used a beautiful Suzani fabric and blue double textured crepe.
A suzani is a large, hand-embroidered textile panel, the word comes from the Persian word suzan, which means needle. Originating from nomadic tribes in Central Asia, suzanis have become highly collectable and valued for their beautiful decoration and fine craftsmanship.
Suzanis have a symbolic significance and were traditionally made by brides and their mothers as part of a dowry, and presented to the groom on his wedding day. They represented the binding together of two families, and were adorned with symbols of luck, health, long life and fertility.
Size 8 - 14. The shape of the coat is oversized and is a one size fits all.
Model is a size 8 and 5ft 9
