At this time we have only one vintage Afghan clothing item. It is a 1960s or 1970s Afghan suede coat for a little person. The coat is fully lined in sheepskin (even in the arms) and the cuffs and opening is trimmed with the softest long sheep or goat hair for decoration. It looks like a really warm garment for the cold weather in mountnous Afghanistan. There is embroidery around the body of the coat and at the sleeves. These coats were built to last! There is a very antique looking clasp to do the coat up. It is fully handstitched throughout and is also embroidered in purple and yellow silk thread in a psychadelic pattern on the front and the back. Size: Chest: 26" (approx.), shoulder seam to end of sleeve: 13", underarm to end of sleeve: 8", Back of neck to bottom of coat (inluding hair): 18"
