Each coat is made using one genuine Basotho traditional blanket, hand-cut, meticulously produced with hand-stitched finishes. Our signature cut has no side seams / we avoid cutting into the blanket keeping its integrity, form, and symbolism intact. Each woven blanket motif carries specific symbolic meanings.
Please note: as this is a custom product, production delay of 1 month on coats and neck warmers - over the holiday period.
This unisex, oversized unfitted coat can be worn closed (revealing the shield-like motif) or open with the last press stud closure (revealing our hidden lapel-styled coat). This investment coat is a timeless statement piece with a fascinating history behind the evolution of the Basotho blanket. Please note that the coat can be styled with a belt (belt not included).
