Red Purple and Black Velvet Jacket, Re-Dyed in Afghanistan

This jacket came from Fusion Fashion in Portobello Road London. I'm fairly sure they had two shops when I bought it, but I can only find the address of one: 242 Portobello Road, not far south from where the Westway crosses. The owner of the shop told me it was probably made in the UK as a conventional one-colour jacket, but then sent to Afghanistan to be re-dyed: in the 1970s, if I remember correctly. Apparently, that was trendy then.
