Crochet Bomber Jacket with Shearling Collar #2
This jacket is made by hand at our atelier from crocheted yarn that was pieced together by our co-op of women on the outskirts of Marrakech. It takes up to one week to crochet enough fabric for one piece.
The bomber jacket, also known as a flight jacket, has its origins in military apparel. It was first introduced by the U.S. Army Aviation Clothing Board in 1917 to keep pilots warm in the uninsulated, open cockpits of World War I aircraft. In the latter half of the 20th century, the bomber jacket transitioned from military uniform to a symbol of counterculture, including the LGBTQ+ community, who reclaimed the jacket as a symbol of freedom for all to wear proudly. By the 1980's, Hollywood stars like Tom Cruise cemented the bomber jacket’s mainstream status and has been a fashion staple ever since. Read the history of the bomber jacket on our journal.
