Curiously, there’s a popular belief that Biba garments were poorly made. The fact that this late 1960s rust and black knitted jumper is still around today is because of the high quality wool from which it is made.
This is very much a style of its era, and may even have been worn as a minuscule mini dress measuring just 25 inches long when fully stretched. The ultra long (11 inch) ribbed roll neck collar is also characteristic of Biba’s designs.
The item is in very good vintage condition (with a slight hole on one elbow seam that is an easy repair) and would fit a UK size 6-8. This piece has its original 1960s Biba label. According to our sources, the item was probably manufactured in Hong Kong.
