Basotho Unisex Jacket 01

$ 225.00

The Basotho unisex blanket coat is designed to feel like you are actually wrapped in a blanket. These iconic traditional blanket coats are hand cut and individually made by a team of skilled women in Pretoria South Africa. 

In the Kingdom of Lesotho, Basotho blankets are a common part of daily wear.  Not only as barrier to the cold, but also as a status symbol and cultural identification.  These blanket coats are built to last a life time.

The history of the iconic Basotho blanket:
In 1860 the King of Lesotho was given a blanket as a gift, and he abandoned his traditional leopard-skin kaross in favour of the blanket. The Basotho people followed their leader, and to this day the blanket is an integral part of their lives.
