              did not like the very thin qualith of the fabric used in the garment.
              did not think it would hold up well in wash or wear.

                    Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. When the fabric is untied, natural patterns appear in the places where the string prevented the dye from taking hold. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky pair of travel-ready garments. Made of a black knit viscose rayon, these pieces drape beautifully and expand your travel wardrobe by working as separates or as a set. The shirt also features appliquéd circles of bandhani. Made in Jaipur, India.

                    The Taj Mahal in Agra, India, may be the world’s most ornate memorial, built in the 17th century by Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz. Inspired by the intricate inlay work found there, artisans hand-embroidered paisley patterns on the front, back, and sleeves of this flattering black silk jacket. No closure.

                    Block printing is a time-honored Indian textile tradition. Artisans use carved wooden blocks to stamp dye along lengths of fabric that are laid out to dry in the sun. Several intricate patterns combine in this lightweight, lightly quilted jacket that reverses to black with white dots. Features patch pockets on both sides.

                    The quilting method called "trapunto" that accents this lightweight jacket is found in the traditional garments worn by the Gurung tribe in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley. In trapunto, originally an Italian technique, the design is sewn into two layers of fabric, and then raised shapes are created by inserting stuffing through slits or spaces in the weave of the backing fabric. It was popular in the U.S. through the Civil War, but few designers today take the time to work the technique by hand.

                    The swirling pattern of paisley—in Farsi called boteh, the word for a young flower or palm leaf—evolved from a traditional Kashmiri design. The Silk Road brought Kashmiri shawls to Europe where they became wildly popular. The Scottish mill that was first able to re-create the intricate design was in Paisley, Scotland, and gave the pattern its English name. This lightweight, 100% cotton, open-front jacket is made in India with an allover paisley pattern and hand-beaded accents. The greens, blues, reds, and pinks evoke the flowers in Kashmir's Shalimar Garden, built by 17th-century Mughal emperor Jahangir and famous for its nightly fountain displays.

                    Artisans working in Kathmandu, Nepal, use a traditional quilting technique called "trapunto" to add the detailing at the shoulders and yoke of this jacket. In trapunto, decorative patterns are sewn with lightweight batting to add texture without bulk. The artisans who make this jacket create the pattern freehand as they guide the garment through a treadle-operated sewing machine. Light enough to wear as a shirt or a jacket, it multiplies your travel wardrobe and helps you pack light. Hip length, with side welt pockets, turn-back cuffs, flattering princess seams, and an adjustable tie back.
