Desc Details Sizing Shipping Reviews

Handwoven and hand dyed indigo cotton from northern Ghana. Side slit pockets, slim rolled lapel. Loose fitting unlined overcoat perfect for layering. 

This textile has a rich history, and was traded across the Sahel as a currency long before colonization in West Africa. Stripweaving from northern Ghana is now primarily made into Batakari, a loose smock that northern men dance and twirl in.

  • 100% handwoven cotton
  • Hand dyed with natural indigo, ikat warp
  • Indigo Care: 
    We wash all of our indigo fabrics several times, but please note that our natural indigo pieces will crock. If crocking persists, please try soaking and washing the garment in a vinegar solution (10 parts water to 1 part white vinegar) and drying in the sun.
  • What is crocking?
    This means for the first few wears you should expect some color loss. This tendency is a sign of authenticity in West Africa, and the blue is considered to have medicinal properties on the skin.

  • Handwoven care: 
    We recommend spot cleaning this garment if it becomes visibly stained. If it must be cleaned then we recommend dry cleaning. You may machine wash alone in cold water, and hang dry.

Gorgeous. high quality piece

I absolutely love this coat. The osei duro brand is worth the cost to have a piece that is made with care and technique. This is a staple on my wardrobe and the item arrived with a care card and sustainable packaging. Thank you for being a responsible merchandiser making excellent pieces. definitely will keep supporting.

Lovely Coat

Perfect fit (5’6” 132 lbs)…beautiful, heavy cotton fabric has a great weight; drapes beautifully.

Beautiful coat

This is an absolutely beautiful coat. I took one star off because the dye does come off, unfortunately - particularly in the back and inside the pockets. Not a total deal breaker, but can’t wear with light clothes underneath!

Not so impressed

Not as dark as featured in picture. Dye rubs off too easily. Returned
