Custom Embroidered Dream Jacket


I recently picked up a jacket that I feel was so special that I've decided to give it it's own post! It's a 1970s era custom hippie embroidered jacket that is so covered in embroidery that it borders on folk art masterpiece! I obsess over embroidery, so this a jacket made me literally stop breathing for a second when I first saw it. The back side is covered in the tiniest and most amazing hand embroidery. There are tons of flowers on vines, a spider in a spiderweb, butterflies and even a dragon (details below). It's definitely one of a kind and special. It's already in the shop HERE!
