Stripped Coat - Beautiful Summer

Stripped Coat - Beautiful Summer

399.00

A beautiful striped coat worn by a female employee of a market. This piece is completely handmade and in great condition. The writing on the front of the jacket reveals its origin: Fuchuu, a part of Tokyo. The name of the market or shop was Mika, which translates to ‘beautiful summer”. Our best guess is that this was the uniform of a woman working in a flower shop. This is a unique piece, and its condition is exceptionally well. Ready to be worn or to display.
