VINTAGE 1960s Super 100's Tasmanian by Ing. Loro Piana & C. HANDMADE Exclusive Cape / Poncho/ Robe

I have never seen a robe of this quality. I bought it at an auction in Denver . No one knew very much about it. Speculation is the design
was taken from an old Italian church . Absolutely incredible .
The time and love involved in the master level fabrication of this unique creation is overwhelmingly stunning.

The robe features a royal- free flowing design with slits on the sides, without any buttons or attachments to close the center front.

This is truly a one of a kind exclusive garment. It was handmade in the 1960's from the finest Italian wool.
Piana wool loom in the world and lined with black silk. The term 'Ing.' on the label means that it is Loro Piana fabric that has been supplied to an outside clothing manufacturer.
The person that handmade the cape is unknown, as the cape looks to be made for a high priest/top ranking leader of some type of religious or esoteric group. The embroidery is magnificent and very detailed that was done by hand as well; running along the collar, shoulder and full length of the opening on both sides of the front. It must have taken weeks, if not months to complete this amount of hand stitched embroidery detail, which is perfectly symmetrical in design.

Excellent vintage condition; No rips or tears in the wool fabric or silk lining. Inside lining has a few loose stitching areas, the thread in 3 separate areas has exposed the seams. Please message me with any questions you may have prior to buying. All sales final & signature required for delivery. Please double check your shipping address to make sure it is correct at time of purchase. Thank you!
