Description

Lamvak designed this piece of garment and I made it. It was very challenging project with many details. It’s made from two layers of wool, finished with jute piping, metal buttons and linen button loops. It’s decorated with multiple machine embroidery – amazing four season tree, celtic tree of life, celtic knots and our label embroidered on the inner part. The most important part is the arm pads (not sure how to call them) – they had to be rigid enough to hold this shape.

    Awesome job. How do you make the shoulders rigid enough to hold the shape? This is a great design :)

      Nothing really :) Two layers of solid wool and this stiff jute piping was enough. Thank you!
