About

Magical Karabana flowers abound, woven in gold, silver, orange and green. A very special lady in the 1960s saw the magic of this glorious textile and had this beautiful one of a kind opera coat made. The metallic fibers are made with a wash of gold which maintains the lustrous shine of this textile. Meant originally to be worn sparingly as an obi this full coat in this fabric is true decadent luxury. Beautifully constructed and fully lined with no closure.
