Absolutely incredible, unusual and beautifully bizarre in process, this 1980s vintage custom hand made sweater jacket is beyond rare and collectible! From Sante Fe artist Nancy Paap, these amazing pieces were hand made specific to each client ensuring this is truly one of a kind. Prices ranged from $985-$1,985.
NO animals were harmed in the process, the fur is gathered from brushing out the long and luxurious fur of Chows, Samoyeds and Collies, then spun in preparation to be woven. The texture is SO soft and silky, and the visual textures are just as impressive!
Woven and crocheted with wool, spun fur, and fully lined in silk, with natural antler or bone buttons that close the front. Lined side seam pockets, boxy, oversized silhouette with different colors and patterns at each turn. This is heavy, warm, and the most unique vintage piece I've ever found. It is in completely perfect condition, appears unworn and cared for with the utmost respect.
Purchase price includes full insurance and signature confirmation unless you request otherwise within your order.
Make this piece of art yours then pass it down to someone worthy!

If a size label is present on this vintage garment, it almost certainly differs from modern expectations of that size. Carefully taken measurements are provided for you to compare to your own body or against a similar item that fits you well.
Size recommendations are suggestions only and are not guaranteed. There is no standardized size chart across all brands and eras, so referring to measurements is the only true way to determine the fit of vintage clothing.

Curating and presenting collections of vintage clothing is my artistic passion and has been my full-time career for nearly a decade. Every item has been meticulously inspected, thoroughly cleaned, and photographed in detail in order to give you all of the information needed to feel confident in your purchase.
Wearing vintage not only ensures you will be well dressed, but the quality of materials and construction is far above the cheaply made fast-fashion status quo. Most importantly, every time you choose to purchase pre-owned over brand new, you reduce support of the global fashion market which is one of the most polluting and exploitative industries on the planet.
I carefully wrap every order and ship quickly and safely. 99.9% of the supplies used for preparing and shipping your order are vintage, second hand, biodegradable, recyclable or reusable.
You can always feel good and look amazing in vintage clothing, and I’m so grateful you chose my shop to enhance this part of your life!
