"Tabaro e ferariol, s.m. Tabarro; mantello; ferraiolo. Vestimento notissimo e usitatissimo."
[Tabaro or ferariol, n. cloak; mantel; short cloak. A widely known and used piece of clothes" -
From G. Boerio's Dictionary of Veneto Dialects - 1856].

This cooper's cloak ("Tabarro" in Italian) was commonly worn at the turn of the 19th century.
This special short version was widespread among people with the most varied occupations but particularly worn by coopers, bailiffs, snow-shovellers, merchants and wine and corn-retailers. It was probably so much appreciated due to its practical cut.
Made in 100% pure wool, it is water-repellent and resists wine.
