JASPER Custom Chain-Stitched Corduroy Mary Jane Jacket

Sold

 

Item Description:
We got our hands on some completely one of a kind custom vintage jackets chain stitched by masters of the trade with over 70 years of experience, and this is one of them! 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.
