Mid to Late 1920s



In common with the coat seen as a Related Item, this felted wool jacket shows a predilection for bold geometric pattern in the design of outerwear during the middle to late years of the 1920s, though here it is realised in strong, bright colours in contrast to the muted browns of the coat. Labour intensive craft work, often based on traditional methods, also enjoyed popularity in contemporary fashion. Each of the overlapping motifs on this jacket comprises strips of orange, red, green, blue and black felt sewn together edge to edge and then inserted into the background fabric of vivid dark blue felt. The jacket is lined in bright jade green felt.
