1970s Brown and Tan Suede Leather Patchwork Afghan Style Coat, 44in Bust
If you love the 1960s hippy era, then no doubt you will have always wanted an afghan coat! As classic as a cheese cloth shirt and crochet waistcoat, the afghan coat is one piece of clothing we immediately think of when we talk about the boho era of the 60s and 70s. This patchwork gem is from the late 1970s, and made from squares of suede leather, finished off perfectly with faux sheepskin trim. The colours are classic retro too in browns and tans, just waiting to be jazzed up with some tie dye and bright beads. In wonderful condition, this is a star of a coat and will certainly get you noticed!
