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.
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).
