This coat is made of :
2 deer skin for the outer part
2 Toscane lambs for the fur
And wild silk for the inner.
Everything is handsewed.
(exept the inner part sew together by machine, but by hand for put it on the leather)
Long work, I can't tell you how much time... for sure more than 50 hours.

Seul la doublure fut assemblée à la machine, avant qu'elle ne meure xp
Tout le reste cuir, fourrure, assemblage d'ensemble, etc... Main.

Sorry and thanks for the compliment anyway !
But, no this is for Final Fantasy character > Irvine Kinneas
I am a vegetarian. I LOVE animals. but those of you who are preaching against the coat being made from animals seriously gives us vegetarians a really bad name. I mean, come on, no, I personally would not kill an animal and would not wear a fur coat. but I also can't say for sure that there's NOT something in my house made from an animal. if people wanna eat meat, I say, go find the best fuckin steak house you can. if you wanna wear fur, well, I don't have a say now do I? if meat eaters/fur wearers don't try and preach to us, we have to right to preach to them. so stop complaining about what it's made of and just admire the design and stuff. I mean, you don't preach to a lion for eating a gazelle, do you?
on a note to the artist, this is indeed very beautiful and well done. I apologize for my little rant above >_>
I have to face .. since years... people wich think they are better than me or smarter.. because they are vegans, eat stamped "organic" food...
But thoses people don't have a garden, wear sinthetic clothes, fake fur...
If only they know how much plastic and petrol products kills....
Also organic is not a quality, it's rules, searching for quality... you can have awesome products.. without being "organic" (because you have to paid for be stamped organic too.. but you also have the right to use chimical, even if you're organic.. WTF)
Anyway. I have "vegans friends", some wear leather, some other eat fish, eggs...
Well I see many reasons.. And I have friends with good reasons, and wich are not all the time fuking people mind ^^
Thansk for understanding ^^
Out of curiosity, when you sew such soft leather, do you use gloves & canvas thread? I've thick callouses on my hands due to not liking how sloppy gloves feel when sewing/crafting.
A kind of silk, simply
More on wikipedia I guess ^^
This silk is less regular, and sometime harder than the "regular silk", for what I know
I use leather needle, pliers/tongs and my hands x)
and sometime I wear mitens, for hard leather sewing, and with waxed linen thread.
The thread here is just linen.
And yeah pliers are great! Though mine keep scratching up the wire/needles. I use my leather more for sculptures than wearable outfits, but it's still a pain to sew with.
And learn why humans can become what they are now.
I won't say more, you can't appreciate that kind of work it's seems obvious.
I am seriously sorry for you
However, if you have syntheti,c non-sustainable items in your house (ie, plastics, polyester, polymers, etc) then I think you need to look around & see what's really hurting the animals in the long-term. Might want to look up 'oil sands' for best effect.^^
I totally see the beauty in animals, sometimes I very much envy their majestic & simple lifestyle. Unfortunately, this current age/culture has literally made me sick of certain foods. I cannot eat over-processed, gluten, MSG & chemical-filled junk. All the hormones & antibiotics in animals are equally destructive. I now have to look into raising my own animals for consumption. I raise my own food (quail/chicken) because I know I can more humanely raise/cull them than a mass-growing/processing facility could.
I truly wish with all my heart I could live off sunshine & dew drops, but for me it's just not possible. I'm always borderline anemic 'cause I try to reduce my intake of meat. :/
That said, if I were a food animal & some human wanted to eat me, you can be sure I'd try to struggle to get away. Better than just giving up outright. If I were killed to be eaten though, I'd hope they at least use every part & not waste.
How I cull the birds (emotionally) was & is very complicated, though not for here. I will say the first culling literally traumatized me & gave terrible nightmares for weeks - when I could actually sleep. But I needed to cross that path in my life, direly so. I doubt there will ever be a time where I won't care about an animal with each culling. A part of me will die with each bird, just as a part of them lives on inside me. In that, I feel it gives me a healthier relationship with Nature [in all its aspects] than I had before.
I'm glad you have few food issues to worry about, that makes me very happy. I wish you many wonderful times ahead & if you ever want to chat please feel free to Note me!
As for death, sadly it's much of what I grew up with. I was also the only one who knew how to cook in the family, so processing already dead birds was something I was used to. It was the culling of something I raised which was the traumatic part. Considering, I felt animals were more family to me than the humans I was raised with.
If the wilderness calls to you, then go to it. Pour your heart into your dreams/goals. You may have to let go of certain habits/likes, to get to where you want to go, but wouldn't it be worth it in the end?
Looking forward to your Note. In the meantime, happy new year!
