About the Cape

A cape is a sleeveless outer garment that drapes over the shoulders and fastens at the neck. Capes can be made from various materials, such as wool, cotton, or synthetic fibers, and are often worn for warmth, protection, or as a fashion statement. They can vary in length from short and shoulder-length to floor-length.
