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 tieback.


Crafted in Nepal. 100% cotton. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18), XXL (20).


Machine wash.

    Comments about Lightweight Nepalese Travel Jacket:

    Will return the jacket. The sizing is funny. When we require a larger size, it is usually not in the shoulders and our arms do not get longer, but our waist, hips and bust do add inches. The makers forgot to add inches in the needed areas while adding bigger neck opening and wider shoulders and longer arms. The way it is made makes adjustments impossible.

          Good fit for my 15-yr. old. Perfect length. Good color for a brunette. Probably not intended to take extensive wear. Atractive design. Price is valid.

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Good quality stitching

          Cons

          • May require ironing
          • Style not flattering

          Best Uses

            Comments about Lightweight Nepalese Travel Jacket:

            I question whether this 100% cotton jacket would be practical for traveling; it says machine washable, but probably requires ironing.
            I returned this because the brown color has a yellow cast, which is not flattering to me. Also, I wear size 14 and the Large was too small with a shirt under it.
            I would only recommend it to a friend if they were very slender and if they had the skin tone to go with this.

            Like its neighbors in China and Japan, Korea has a remarkable garden culture, with peaceful natural spaces decorating the grounds of temples, palaces, and office parks alike. Our lightweight travel jacket is inspired by the meditative paths and blossoming plum trees found in these serene gardens. A border of hanbok-inspired fabric—Korea’s traditional formal wear—decorates the yoke and cuffs. Made by a Korean-American family-run business in Los Angeles, home to the largest Korean diaspora in the U.S.

            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.

            Being prepared for travel in changeable climates doesn’t have to mean bringing twice the gear. Our water-resistant, blazer-style jacket is perfect from Seattle to São Paulo. Its ability to shrug off wet weather is due to the tight weave of the fabric, not a surface waterproofing treatment, so it remains effective even after years of wear. Four exterior patch pockets, two hand pockets, interior zip pocket, and interior MP3 pocket with an earphone pass-through slot help you keep a ton of travel essentials within reach. Button cuffs customize the fit.

Treadle-stitched details based on the traditional trapunto quilting worn by Kathmandu’s Gurung tribe decorate the pocket, back, and left bottom side. A blend of purple warp threads and magenta weft threads creates a deeper and more versatile color than in fabrics that are dyed after weaving.
