I really do not know much about the provenance of this sleeved cloak. It came from an estate of a woman who collected textiles from her travels throughout Africa & the Middle East, during the 50s-70s. If I were to guess, I'd say this is Middle East in origin. Nice weight linen, with black cotton piping & lining. Has one hook closure at the neck & is open front. Huge pointy hood, for extra witchy goodness. Two slits for pockets so, perhaps this was meant as an overcoat. The sleeves were taken in at some point & can be let out. Very interesting piece, indeed. Freshly laundered & ready to wear.
Issues: Overall very sturdy condition. Some marks on the surface of the cloak. Otherwise no holes, tears, snags to note.

This construction of the cloak has sloped shoulders. This is meant to be worn oversized. Model is 5'8 / 36 bust / 30 waist / 42 hips.
