The Vintage stock is sourced in the Czech Republic. We are actively seeking items which are made in Czechoslovakia (Bohemia) or items which have been hand made between 1900 and 1989. In the post war years under Communism people had less clothing available to buy so many people knew how to sew and how to copy and recreate clothing they saw in western magazines. Generally Maminka (Mum) or Babicka (Granny) would make excellent , beautifully made, fully lined copies of designer clothing! These pieces are very well made because no-one wanted their prom dress to look “home-made” of course. I’ve even found a sports top where the puma had been embroidered on by Granny I presume to make it look like the Puma brand which was not generally available in Czechoslovakia – or was very difficult and expensive to come by. We love the beautiful items…all of which have their own special history and which were available here in the stunning city of Prague and our beautiful Bohemia and Moravia over the last century.
We stock blouses, skirts, jackets, trousers, dresses, under slips, corsets, hats, coats, gloves, shoes, bags.. and probably much more I’ve forgotten to mention…
We currently have a large selection of Ladies coats- from 1980’s faux fur to 1950’s Satin House coats, 1970’s Rain coats to 1960’s leopard skin (faux)
We also have ball gowns..
