Archives, vintage Toshiki & Maryszka

Going thru some old slides which I recently scanned for our 30 year anniversary of designing jackets together, I found one of me modeling a lambskin piece from the late ’80’s, early ’90’s. Each of the pieces we made were one of a kind, hand cut geometric shapes backed with primary color lambskins. The stretch of the lambskin and holding it in place while stitching straight is a testament to Toshiki’s skill. That year we were juried into The Smithsonian Craft Show for the first time, which is held in April of the year. We took so many special orders on these we were booked until Christmas!  Who remembers, or purchased one of these?  If you have a picture of it, or better yet of you in it, we would love to hear!

  1. Don’t know who is more glam- you or the jacket! How did you scan the slides- what kind of equipment do you need? Now I’m inspired to look through our old collection. I think there’s a file around from the 80’s , maybe even mohair, yikes.
