This one-of-a-kind jacket is based on the traditional French worker's jacket known as "bleu de travail". The fabric is repurposed from a vintage or antique French hemp bed sheet purchased in the markets of Provence.
The wearer’s back right of the jacket features beautifully applied visible mending done by ratatouille designs in order to repair a small hole in the fabric. One patch has been placed for the repair and the other two have been applied to visually balance the required patch.
This jacket is a ratatouille designs size extra small. It typically would fit someone who is a size extra small to small. Please review the measurements provided (see last two photos for this jacket) to ensure that this would be the right size for you.
Fabrics that are not new linen are listed as vintage or antique as it is difficult to date fabrics and, when sourcing fabric, my focus is on its tactile nature and its reflection of a history of use and/or workmanship.
When I identify fabric content as linen or hemp or a blend I am doing this based on considerable experience and not scientific tests.
