Our Afghan waistcoats are handmade and ethically produced in Afghanistan. When you buy one of our coats you are supporting local Afghan women and their communities. We work directly with an Afghan family, paying them upfront to produce authentic Afghan (waist)coats using traditional methods and style. Each coat sold directly benefits families and local communities. Afghanistan has a rich history of creating traditional and unique handcrafted clothing, we want to share this beauty and history, whilst supporting local communities.
The waistcoats are made of sheepskin from a variety of local sheep breeds. Most of the materials are leftovers from the meat industry. In this way, we try to stay sustainable. The coats are handmade, unique, and one of a kind items. However, as each item is individually handcrafted made with natural materials there may be small inconsistencies between the items.
