Lace Embellished 1700's Coat
Photo copyright 2007 by Nina Rizzo
This early 1700's style coat was patterned after a diagram in the Cut of Men's Clothes based on a garment in the Victoria and Albert Museum.  The coat shown above was made from cardinal red medium weight wool flannel stiffened at the front and cuffs with horsehair interfacing.  The inside of the coat was lined with heavyweight softened black linen and has black wool flannel facings.  There was just under five yards of black Venise lace appliqued to the front, the back vent, and the cuffs.  The points of the lace along the front opening had a decorative black glass button with rhinestone center and gold highlights on each making a total of 24 buttons. 

This coat can not be exactly repeated, but something similar can be made as a custom order.
Custom ordered long pirate coat, waistcoat, and hemp shirt
For this custom ordered ensemble, we created a long pirate style coat made from charcoal gray wool flannel trimmed in braid, a silver and gray brocade waistcoat, and a hemp pirate style shirt.  We hand dyed the shirt with black walnuts collected locally.

Starry Cloak in Black Silk Velvet
It's full of stars!  This black silk velvet cloak is embroidered around all edges with a silver star field four inches wide containing over 1820 stars.  This prototype was lined with red slipper satin. 

A starry cloak like this on silk velvet with slipper satin lining would cost $695, and on wool flannel lined with slipper satin it would be $595.  On wool flannel lined with satin but only having embroidery at the front edge (NOT around the hemline) it would cost $395.  (The difference in price is due to the extra time and materials involved in embroidering on velvet.)

The Embroidered Snowflake Wearable Art Cloak
Photo copyright 2007 by Nina Rizzo

Silver snowflakes in different shapes and sizes are embroidered in waves around the hem of this midnight blue wool silver satin lined cloak. The snowflakes were researched and digitized from actual ice crystal photo records, then painstakingly machine embroidered over the course of many hours. 

Just as snowflakes are unique, this wearable art cloak will never be exactly repeated, but a similar one may be available on our Cloaks for Sale page.

Cardinal Red Wool Snowflake Cloak
Photo copyright 2007 by Nina Rizzo

 This cardinal wool version of our embroidered Snowflake cloak was fully lined with heavy white satin throughout the cloak body and with white velboa short pile faux fur (or like a very long pile velvet) in the hood.  The velboa folded to the outside edge of the hood as a border.

Silk Velvet Mantle Silk Velvet Mantle

This unlined silk velvet wedding or handfasting mantle was created from luxurious natural parchment colored silk velvet and is clasped with a silver chain linked closure that could either be slipped on over the head, or one side of the closure can be removed and reattached via a cotter pin (included).   The hood style is a little bit unusual for our oversized hoods, as it is nearly hidden from the front view, but when raised, it draped forward around the face.
