The origin of these Afghan coats comes from the traditional overcoat worn by the Afghan tribe known as the Pashtuns. By the mid-1960s, Afghan coats were Afghanistan’s biggest fashion export. These beautiful coats were loved and cherished by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones and were frequently featured on the pages of Vogue.
