(#1968) 19th Century Chinese Bamboo Jacket

SKU: 1368
$8,500.00Price

The jacket constructed from tiny pieces of hollow bamboo sewn together to create a mesh. The effect of this open-work construction was like that of a modern string vest: it trapped the air, kept the wearer cool and dry in the hot weather, and protected the outer clothing.
