The Chore Coat: “Toile de Chine”

Oliso | 517

Designer: Michele Muska


Many occupations in France had their own type of coat depending on their job. The chore coat was meant to protect your clothing while you worked.
This midi length coat is adored with vintage hand pieced log cabin quilt blocks from the 1940’s, hand stitching, and appliqués made from fabric and kantha remnants. Forgaging bag accompanies this mushroom gatherer.
