Entierly hand sewn using a fine, beige, silk thread. Coat is made from a finely woven pineapple fiber, likely produced in the Phillipines. Rear tail pockets are of a mid-weight, twilled cotton. Buttons are self covered buttons over lightweight wooden disk. Coat was likely produced within the Phillipines and brought back to the U.S. sometime in the mid-late 1860's.
