1970s Red Hand Painted Char Jacket
The Char label is one of the best of the hand made hippie chic labels from the sixties and seventies and has a cult like following - and I have a couple of really unusual pieces to share! I am still having that little hippie chic bohemian moment this season so forgive me the indulgence of sharing it with you. There is just something about these late 1960s, early 1970s hand made, (and often made to order), soft as butter leathers that just feel right for the mood of the season. This one is a fantastic jacket that is hand-dyed to a deep red color - you can imagine the dye came from the desert itself! (It is a slight more dusty, deep red then photoed) It is a combination of suede and deer skin that is hand cut and whip-stitched into place. The deerskin front and back panels are then hand painted with a bouquet of sweet little field flowers. Each sleeve has a notch cuff and is finished with a tight edging of whip stitching. Dog eared collar and incredible hand made buttons!
