One Of A Kind Chain-Stitched Thrashed Levi's Denim Jacket

Sold

Item Description:
Another masterpiece customized by our friend who has had the chain-stitching craft in his family for over 70 years! This amazing thing features a huge vibrant skull with wings and two 1970's patches. The jacket is PERFECTION: totally thrashed, worn, and everything we look for in a denim jacket.

Chain stitch is a sewing and embroidery technique in which a series of looped stitches form a chain-like pattern. Chain stitch is an ancient craft - examples of surviving Chinese chain stitch embroidery worked in silk thread have been dated to the 5th – 3rd century BC.
Chain stitching the back of this jacket took 5-6 straight hours. The pricing on these jackets is higher in order to pay the skilled craftsmen what they deserve for their work and art.
