Bordo Red

Altaika Bordo Red vests (Waistcoats in UK) come in various reddish, brickish, crimsonish colors – each vest enjoys a stunningly interesting autumn Appalachian hews. Active fit provides for a full range of motion; non-chafing seams lets you move and layer comfortably; whether on their own or under a shell jacket or sweater, Altaikas work well as an under layer or outer layer for any walking, fishing, hunting, gardening, or any outdoor activity including riding a motor scooter or bike or just going to the store for groceries.
  • Made of 100% Central Asian sheepskin with no polyester or non-organic materials except for the zipper
  • Number of pieces: each vest is unique with minimum number of 10 and maximum of 500 individual pieces unless fur is facing outwards. Each vest is carefully sewn together by hand
  • Sleeveless and usually with high collar for protection against the cold
  • Traditional left and right pockets
  • Cuffs and hems reinforced with 100% leather (garment quality sheepskin, deerskin or cowhide)
  • Some of the vests have the original markings from the tannery visible on the outside or an occasional other mark
  • YKK zippers unless otherwise noted; some with 2-way zips; made in USA
  • Other individualized details depending on the master craftsman
From the Belukha Mountain region at the cross roads of Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China. No two patterns are the same nor geometrically symmetrical. Colors will not be uniform and are mismatched. Most vests are scruffy with scratches and marks as was the case 100 years ago. We do all this on purpose to give character, spice and distinctiveness. There is no machine-like perfection in our vests. Each vest/waistcoat is sewn up using many different pieces of sheepskin. In some cases we use vintage leather pieces. A piece may come unstitched and you may be required to re-stitch.
Trim is deerskin (for soft look), sheepskin, or cowhide. We use materials that are otherwise thrown away. We let nothing go to waste and make absolutely unique one-of-a-kind products.
