The Miao have traditionally lived in been isolated, rural communities, but with China’s industrial expansion has reached Miao regions like Guangxi and Guangdong.


Many Miao subgroups are known for their colorful clothing, elaborately decorated with embroidery and brocade. In fact, the Chinese government’s name for various Miao subgroups refers to the predominant color and pattern of the women’s clothing, including red, blue, and black Miao, as well as big flowery and small flowery Miao. They are also renowned for their ornate silver jewelry, sometimes wearing more than 30 pounds worth of necklaces, hair ornaments, bracelets, and more at one time during festivals.

    Throughout India, embroidery and needlework are highly developed local folk arts. In the region of Kashmir, however, needlework is the domain of highly skilled royal craftspeople. Worked in flat chain stitch, embroidery flows like brushstrokes across this distinctive cotton canvas jacket. The cut is an updated and relaxed version of the popular Nehru style. Fully lined. Made in India.

Fortunately our Himalayan Embroidered Silk Jacket requires no such arduous journey to appreciate its heavily embroidered fields of flowers. The front, sleeves, and lower back of this silk jacket are covered with sumptuous embroidery in a chain-stitch style.

    Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests

    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.

    Sheepskin B-3 Flight Jacket
    (Based on 7 reviews)
    Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Jackets and Vests
    This authentic B-3 jacket became the military-issued cold-weather flight jacket in 1934, and it is still the warmest and most insulating bomber jacket made. Aviators in WWII bombers came to rely on their B-3 jackets as they often flew their missions over Europe in unpressurized cabins, where air temperatures could drop to more than 60 degrees below zero. Our B-3 is made from an amazingly soft and supple genuine sheepskin with a classic, aged look and deep-pile natural shearling along the body, sleeves, and collar. With double straps under the collar and straps at the waist that cinch to adjust the fit and keep out wind. Traditional leather welted seams and side-entry pockets are authentic details from the original. Made in U.S.A.

Features a poly-filled cotton lining for warmth, with nylon-lined sleeves. Two lined hip pockets, two zippered chest pockets, and an inner security pocket provide safe space to stash your travel essentials.
