[Handmade] Distressed vintage Guess Jeans vest remake- golden silk Japanese obi with cranes
An unique remake of a vintage "Guess Jeans by Marciano" vest.
The back panel, one of the front pockets, and the inside part of the collar are replaced with even more vintage, heavy woven silk obi- traditional Japanese belt usually worn with a kimono. This one depicts cranes, tambourines, pine trees, clone leaves, and various flowers, such as plums, chrysanthemums, and dahlias. The fabric is in cream shade, with orange, purple, and black accents, as well as a lot of metallic golden patterns.
The back panel is lined with a repurposed synthetic fabric in a warm purple shade, also featuring a flock of cranes.
The jean part is in a bleached cream shade, with distressed and "dirty" accents, giving the item a slightly rebellious look.
The stitching is visible, with some decorative "imperfections", such as double stitching or a zigzag stitch, in purple and pink thread.
The button hole on the silk pocket is tight. Initially it might be difficult to push the button through, but it should adjust with time.
Due to the age of used fabrics, some imperfections, as slight discoloration, or a slightly pulled thread, might occur.
Hand wash in a detergent for silk fabric is highly recommended. The silk part might not react well to machine washing.
