Shaman's Coat and Mola Jacket
I am expecting to go to Vietnam next month and hope to purchase some Shaman's Coats. I have made a connection with an antique dealer who has been successful in the past with scouting them out for me. They are not old old...but surely vintage. Most are made of handwoven fabric and the figures are all hand embroidered. Unlined. They run about 3/4 length and are very wearable.
A few weeks ago I finished my Black Mola Jacket which began life with an orange background. The black area is all strip pieced with several different fabrics to give it some interest.
