Vintage Roma Jacket

Vintage Roma Jacket


A vintage jacket, worn by the Roma community in Transylvania. This unique piece was made completely by hand in the late twentieth century. The bright colours and eye-catching embellishments are typical of Roma traditions and tastes.

This wool jacket is printed with a traditional folk pattern. It features ribbon and beading on the button down collar and cuffs. The buttons are concealed by a panel with lace trim. It is lined with an older fabric, a thrifty touch that shows it’s authenticity as part of a living folk tradition.

It would have originally been worn tucked into a traditional waist belt, hence the unstructured bottom edge. This could be left as it is for a contemporary look, or hemmed for a neater finish.

Shown on a model who is 5”7 and a size 10.
