Handwoven Ikat Cotton & Leather Moto Jacket, 1980s
A rare 1980s vintage men's biker jacket by little-known but incredible British boutique label, Abrasive Aorta by Stefan Archetti. This jacket is a great piece of wearable art - mixing ethnic and Western fashion together perfectly. The main body of the jacket is a black cotton, with buttery soft leather panels at the front and other panels made from a genuine, traditional handwoven and dyed cotton Ikat textile. Archetti's rare label was worn by the likes of Mr C of the Scottish band 'The Shamen' and the singer of 'The Escape club'.
The body of this jacket is slightly cropped and looks great worn with a hoody underneath for a more modern, streetwear take on the look or it could be worn with a t-shirt and biker jeans for a tougher look.
