red broadtail astrakhan fur coat!
Ashtrakhan and Broadtail fur coat are a term used to describe fur skins coming from unborn lambs and is the highest valued type of lamb fur.
Persian lamb has been considered as a finesse fur , a garment for aristocracy . It inspires class without being ostentatious and it manafes to turn heads without crying out loud. It is dressy and has a formal nature.
A few decades persian lamb fur coats were heavy and rather stiff. Nowadays the tanning process has evolved and skins are soft and more lightweight.
One importnat factor that determines , price is the look of the fur. Skins coming from unborn lambs have a glossy , flat , wavy "moiree'" look that is highly apraised and literally loved by haute couture designers. Skins from lambs aged 1-10 days start to grow hair that tend to look like the grown lambs as we know them. The hair is longer and curlier. Below are photos where the differences are portrayed.
