Description:
Leather, or suede, binds the edges of nearly all of Cashin's designs that were made for the leather house, Sills & Company. Sills was first and foremost a leather manufacturer, but agreed to produce her work in other materials if it included leather or suede, hence the use of leather trim. She called these trims "outlinings," "tracings," or "the frame that holds them all together... the leatherings". They were nearly almost always dyed. This poncho is a short, wide rectangle. It fastens up the center front with three brass toggles beginning at the collar. The red, navy, cream, and tan houndstooth printed poncho is trimmed with an inch & a half of tan leather down the sides, up the front, and on the collar. At the sides, leather trim outlines the deep armholes. This poncho is one piece of continuous fabric, having no side seams. (CAM#162)
