Reindeer Jacket

I wish I knew more about this jacket. All I know is that it was made by a furrier in California. The cut is a bit unusual, with a square bottom and high button stance- and overall the detailing is unusual enough to make it difficult to date. The tag in it is of an old style, but that wouldn’t be uncommon for a furrier or custom tailor. And then there’s the fabric- it really stands out in a crowd. Reindeer and birds. Thick tapestry-type material. Again, very unusual and exotic. But I can’t put my finger on where it’s from. Nordic? South American? Like the Nudie Suit jacket, this isn’t one that comes out all that often, but when it does, it makes a statement.
