1960s Char Leather & Suede Wrap Scenic Patchwork Skirt

The Char label is one of the best of the hand made leather goods labels from the sixties and seventies. It has a cult like following because of the quality and sheer fabulousness of their pieces. This skirt is wonderful and an excellent example of their work. They hand-dyed their textiles using colors that instantly make you think of the desert and they loved to use a combination of suede, leather and deer skin that they hand cut and whip-stitched into place. Here they have made a fabulous wrap skirt that has a wonderful patchwork landscape scene that goes all the way around the entire skirt. Char made these pieces, by hand from approx 1968 to about 1975-76 in Mexico. Some of the best leather craftsman in the world were there at the time and the piece made are fantastic. A really unusual piece. Excellent condition

Unlined, hand made and whip-stitched. It closes with a combination of hook & eye and leather ties. You could easily adjust the hooks and ties to fit a variety of sizes. I have given the measurements of the back seam to seam but you can easily go up or down a couple inches in either direction. It shows normal patina for leather of this age with the occasional scuff and wear that just adds to its authentic vintage feel.

Length: 22" from waist to hem
