ATTENTION SPECIAL HAND WOVEN TESSITURA COLOMBINA WOOL & ALPACA FABRIC, HAND-STITCHED BUTTONHOLES & REAL HORN BUTTONS.
An Essapmi, Lyon Europe Exclusive
GEOFFREY B. SMALL
“This super limited edition SEJ11 jacket design is one of 3 pieces of its kind made by hand in the entire world. Of these, just one piece was created for all of Europe exclusively for Essapmi in Lyon, from our original 4-button flap-pocket fully-lined hunting jacket pattern from our extensive tailoring research, and cut using exclusive handwoven wool and alpaca fabric woven for us by the Colombo family at Tessitura Colombina in Badoere di Morgano, Treviso where it takes 3 days working on one of the original 18th century looms carefully kept and maintained for generations to make enough cloth just to make a single jacket. It was combined with pure Como stripe viscose lining, then specially individually hand dyed in our studios with a special process which takes over 8 hours for each piece to achieve its special patina and unique effects. The piece also features real working buttonhole surgeon’s sleeve cuffs, remarkable real horn buttons made exclusively for us by Claudio and Cinzia Fontana in Parma Italy, and real hand-stitched buttonholes (each one requires 8-10 minutes to cut and sew, almost 2 hours of work creating the buttonholes alone) in luxurious pure silk Bozzolo Reale Milano Seta threads, and is hand-signed and numbered by the designer. Variations in color and color density are not imperfections or irregularities, but specific characteristics of the special hand dyeing technique.We recommend professional cleaning or hand wash in cold water and protect buttons with foil or plastic wrap when washing. Do not wash with other items. Do not put in washer or dryer.”
