As an extraordinary design with materials supplied from the Forbidden City area of Lhasa, Tibet, this red wool cape is incomparable to any other. A golden-colored silk-cotton lining matches the piping in the garment. Extensive embroidered paneling in silk-cotton runs along the side of the body, matching a beautiful badge on the front of the torso. Special-design, gold button closures are a great detail. A convertible cowl neck and hand-made tassels help to embellish this eye-catching design that incorporates spirals and chevrons in brave new ways. This cape would be very difficult to re-make due to the Chinese government closing-off Tibet from normal foreign travel. The cape, with Eugene Tssui seated on one of his chair designs, was featured on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper, Home section, on September 15, 2007.
