Product Description

A luxurious Travel waistcoat made from the best Italian Pima Cotton supplied by Larusmiani, deserves to be named as a fitting tribute to a truly amazing woman.

Freya Stark went where few Europeans, especially women, had ever been before. A British explorer and writer, her travels led her into remote areas of Turkey and the Middle East. While living in Baghdad, she explored and mapped uncharted areas of the Islamic world. Hers were some of the first accurate maps of the region. She moved on foot, on donkeys, on camels and by car – camping along the way. Stark is the author of more than 24 travel books, covering local history, culture and tales of everyday life. In spite of age and illnesses, she never stopped travelling. In 1972 she was honoured as Dame Freya Stark and lived to see her 100th birthday.


We feel that this Woman's achievements need to be highlighted and we are simply wanting to tell people a little of her exploits. 


As well as the fine Italian cotton described above, we use real horn English buttons and the pockets are silk lined. All made here in our own workshop.
