Nuno-felted Coat – “Tsarina”

This ¾ circle gradating length wrap nuno-felted coat with oversized collar and contrast long sleeves is a part of my transeasonal collection “Human Chamaeleanus” inspired by the chameleons as animals as well as by the chameleon nature of human beings; by the theatricality of human’s existence as “social bodies”; by the complexity and multi-sidedness of the human’s “real self”.

The coat is a unique hand-crafted piece made from NZ merino, silk organza and alpaca wool through application of wet felting and “shibori” (Japanese method of surface manipulation and dyeing).

It is not a seamless garment, each element was made separately and then each seam was double hand-stitched to construct the garment and form a better fit. Contrast sleeves and decorative scales on collar are made from alpaca wool transformed utilising “shibori” method called “mokume” (“wood grain”, because of the effect it creates) which involves rows of hand stitching. Prepared piece of woven wool then was dyed in pre-boiling water, dried, and stitching undone. The coat features decorative elements and details which can’t be found in mass-produced garments. Everything is done by hand, no machinery involved. That is why coat’s construction took totally roughly 56 hours of work.

It is one-off the kind stylish, warm and very comfortable coat which will make any wearer feel gorgeous (like a Queen) and cosy.
