Napa Leather Shearling Coat at Germantown Friends Craft Show

We are always looking for new and different ideas for ways to keep
coats closed to keep out the cold, which is what our clients want.
We are always wondering about coats we see on models in magazines
that have no apparent closure.......how does one stay warm, especially on a windy day?
This winter we got an order from a woman who had difficulty with her hands due to Parkinson's disease, and wanted us to come up with something easier than buttons, snaps and zippers, so when
hubby or the doorman wasn't around to help, she could do the job.

Magnets were the answer.
Just strong enough to hold the front closed.
They are imbedded under the center front tape of this napa
 lightweight merino shearling coat.

Want to see it?

That is an incredible solution to a very difficult situation! Nice way to come up with a creative resolution.
