70's/80's Heavily Hand Embroidered Black Duster$105.00
A classic fitting duster with a colorful bold floral twist! This unique beauty was 100% hand crafted in the Philippines for "Rosemary's" in the late 1970's - early 1980's. The fabrication is 65% polyester and 35% cotton in black. It has a light weight, breathable feel to it (similar to linen, but not so wrinkle prone). Extensive, ornate, and colorful hand embroidery and beading was done on the sleeves, front, and back. The floral motifs are stunning and the contrasting shades of white, pink, purple, green, blue, silver, and gold really pop against the black fabric. The motifs were created with a combination of embroidery, stitching, sequins, and beads. There is even cutwork where cut outs within the embroidery were included in the design. The original tag is still at the neckline.
Excellent vintage condition with no rips or stains. All embroidery and beadwork is intact. Comes from a smoke free home.
