Felted Wool Swing Coat by Larkin Lane
Designed and handmade by a mother-daughter team in Kyrgyzstan, our felted wool pieces by Larkin Lane are nothing less than ART to WEAR. Using felted wool and hand-woven silk, each piece is inspired by Kyrgyzstan's natural beauty. The texture is soft, lightweight and luxurious- they feel as beautiful as they look!! This style in particular has a fun and feminine shape.
The artists begin with 100% pure Merino wool, which has been a part of the Kyrgyzstan culture for centuries. Laying the felted wool out on a flat surface, the artists cut traditional graphic designs into the textile. They then layer handwoven silk over the wool and apply a soap and water solution, fusing the two materials together. With this last step, the artists say 'love happens between the two materials'.
At Larkin Lane, Lark hand selects authentic textiles and collaborates with Kyrgyz artisans in the design of each product. Your purchase supports these craftsmen and women. Thank you for the role you play in keeping global textile traditions alive!
