Description
Woven kangaroo leather sleeves with high collar, shoulders and fringing. The sleeves are formed from a solid piece of leather tattooed with fine line drawings of cherubs, birds and scrolls, loosely inspired by Baroque art. The loose woven ends form a decorative fringe from around the neckline and shoulder descending down centre front.
