The Temple Guardian Hooded Coat is a reversible handcrafted garment by Disorder.

Just give us a few days and we will make it bespoke, to your specifications. This enables us to make you something truly unique and reduce unnecessary clothing waste. We use the exclusive Temple Guardian fabric by Disorder contrasted with tweed cotton fabric to make the coat. The coat is designed and handcrafted in our Birmingham, UK studio by our team of skilled tailors.
The Temple Guardian fabric print is from an original painting by Disorder. The inspiration for the Temple Guardian image comes from our cultural travels around Asia and sixties psychedelia, in particularly from visiting the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar. The Pagoda is surrounded by ‘Chinthe’, a mythical Lion that guards the temple from evil spirits, I spent several day sketching and painting them. On my return to the studio these sketches eventually became the Temple Guardian painting.
