Long Loose Fit Overcoat - Blue Indigo Patchwork
Building on our staple of natural indigo items, we decided to get more playful with our new patchwork technique to create a loose fit long coat for those cool summer evenings.
The natural indigo dye is extracted from plants with a distinctive blue color and was the foundation of centuries-old textile traditions throughout West Africa. Studio One Eighty Nine collaborates with communities in Mali to create the soft and unique fabrics, which are then designed and handmade in Ghana with local artisans. It is a very labor intensive process, taking 5 artisans one day to create one yard of fabric, but well worth it once you receive your one of a kind piece.
This particular loose fit coat pairs very well with our white linen long sleeve dress shirts, bermuda shorts or Andy pants.
Machine wash cold, tumble dry low, do not bleach, iron warm if needed.
