Black suede gilet with white shearling-lined interior, featuring intricatePersian Bakhtiari embroidery motifs, handmade in Italy.
The Bibi Gilet is influenced by traditional Afghan styles adopted by early 1960s hippies, as well as wearers Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon and travelers on the Silk Road who would bring Afghan coats back.
The goat suede used for the coats is ethically sourced in Chennai, India, and is also a biodegradable by-product of the meat industry. The Mongolian sheep fur comes from Mongolian sheep farmed in a small herd in Inner Mongolia. The sheep roam free every day, grazing upon miles of mountainous grassy hills. Eventually, the animals are used for the local meat industry and their wool is used to make warm winter coats such as those that Mongolians have been wearing for thousands of years.
Muzungu Sisters only uses natural sustainable, biodegradable materials that leave a minimal trace on our environment. Just as our pieces are designed to be kept for years to come, we believe in a conscious, conservative approach to consumption.

About The Collection:
Our winter collection White Valley has us reminiscing a long walk in a secluded, yet enchanting snowy valley in the Alps. With a touch of Muzungu whimsy, the prints cover alpine florals, and Safavid miniatures of flowers alike. Our classic styles are supplemented with velvet sets, and new hand-beaded evening dresses. With a nod to mountain flora from Kashmir to Switzerland, the silk prints and ornately beaded soft velvets encompass all you will want to wear this winter.
