Block printing is an Indian textile tradition that dates back more than four millennia. Using hand-carved wood blocks dipped in ink, artisans carefully imprint lengths of vibrant red cotton with scrolling golden patterns. The cloth is laid in the sun to dry before being cut and transformed into this lightly quilted jacket. Button-front. Side vents. Jacket reverses to solid red.


Hand-printed in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. 100% cotton. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12 -14), XL (16-18).


Dry clean.

Should have double checked the sizing on this product. Thought it would fit, but need to return it for a larger size. Not much give in the material.

I am gutted. I bought this jacket and wore it once. I got so many compliments. The colour and gold print amazing. I hand washed it in cold water with Woolite and the colour ran unevenly leaving dark patches of red and transfers of the gold pattern in odd places. It is now unwearable.

The care instructions should be changed to 'Dry clean only' and not hand wash.

                Comments about Rajasthani Block-print Jacket:

                I haven't had occasion to wear this yet, as it's light-weight, not something for winter even as a jacket. It is quite pretty, with the gold print on red. Don't expect a true red, though, as it leans toward orange-red. The cut is boxy, more so than the picture in the catalog. This is typical of quilted jackets, but this one is very stiff. It's dry-clean only because the gold color is "painted on," so you can't wash it to soften it. That may or may not feel like an issue to someone else. I have short arms, so had to turn up the cuffs. They are quilted the opposite way, so that works just fine. It's very pretty, and I know I'll get compliments on this when it warms up enough to wear it.

                          The Mughal Empire dominated the Indian subcontinent in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The shahs spared no luxury, even when the court was on the move during a military campaign or hunting expedition. Printed cottons such as these would have made tent “walls” in the northern Indian desert. The print in this reversible cotton duvet, inspired by the intricate metalwork settings of Mughal jewelry, requires as many as 12 separate blocks to achieve the layers of color and pattern.

                          Few textile manufacturers still take the time to process natural indigo or block-print fabrics, but both practices continue to flourish in Rajasthan, India, where this handcrafted bedding is made using techniques that have been perfected over centuries. Bundles of the indigo plant are soaked to extract the vibrant dye, while long sheets of cotton are laid out awaiting the color. With hand-carved wooden blocks, a wax resist is applied to the fabric. When dyed, the wax areas remain white while the rest takes on the evocative hues of midnight, lapis lazuli, and cerulean that all begin with the tropical indigo plant.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.

                          The grounds of Vienna's Belvedere Palace have hosted one of Europe's greatest gardens since Belvedere was designed in the early 1700s. Topiary-lined avenues exist alongside the emperor's baroque private garden. This double-faced boiled wool jacket is designed with the same traditionally Austrian combination of elegance and exuberance. The classic Austrian cut emphasizes a design heritage as refined as the garden's formal walkways, while scrolling velvet trim along the collar, hem, and sleeves adds a playful spark to a sophisticated style. The wind-resistant and wrinkle-free natural fiber is ideal for travel.

                          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.
