Throughout India, embroidery and needlework are highly developed local folk arts. In the region of Kashmir however, needlework was the domain of highly skilled royal craftspeople. Worked in a flat chain stitch called ari, embroidery flows like brushstrokes across this distinctive cotton canvas jacket. The cut is not fitted, but is rather an updated and relaxed version of the popular Nehru style.


Hand-embroidered in India. 100% cotton canvas. Full poly lining.


Dry clean only.

In Himalayan Kashmir and northern India, chain stitch embroidery is a refined art, worked using cotton, silk, or wool. An awl-like hook called an ari is used instead of a needle to create a refined ''cobbler's stitch,'' which allows the craftsman to cover a larger area of work in a shorter time. This is one of the reasons why ari embroidery often covers large areas, if not the entire body, of the textile or garment it adorns.


Royal women in Kutch, in northern India, were major patrons of early ari artists, and commissioned work covered in typical Persian motifs of peacocks and flowers. So delicate are some of the best examples of this embroidery that the most intricately adorned fabrics are said to be ''under ari's spell.''

      The gift receiver LOVED it. She's admired it many times in the catalog and was pleased to receive it as a gift. I followed the advice in the ad that said to order a smaller size becuz the jacket ran large.

        Great except for the sizing. I bought a small and I have to take out six inches on the sides. The shoulders were also too broad.

            This was one of those "must have" purchases, i.e. the "if I don't buy this I know I'll be sorry" scenario! I wore it for the first time yesterday to attend church. Received lots of compliments. The variety of colors in the needlework makes it possible to pair it with many different types of jewelry, and shoes, depending on the occasion.

              The design work is very detailed, and not sloppy. The jacket is lined, and will work very well for summer and early fall. You can dress it down and wear with jeans, or dress it up and pair with slacks.
              Very pleased with quality, and value.

              Although I am a casual dresser, I do enjoy dressing up when going out, and this jacket is stylish and attractive. Unfortunately, it is also very big for me, and I am going to have to alter it to fit. Fortunately, I am capable of doing that, but for someone who is not a sewer it could be an expensive problem.

                  Rangoli are "paintings" of sand, petals, rice, and other temporary materials created on the floor of Indian homes during celebrations. These geometric designs, often round or hexagonal, are the inspiration for our printed cotton jacket. Hand-printed and hand-embroidered in India. 100% cotton with metal embellishments along the placket and shoulders.

                  Archeological evidence suggests that block printing has been practiced in India since the 5th century BC. Also known as relief printing—when it’s done on paper, the ink leaves behind a barely visible raised texture—block printing produces a distinctive line, especially when printed in high-contrast black and white. Hand-pieced and hand-printed, this elegant jacket pairs sections of classic block-printed patterns with swaths of solid black, resulting in a stylish and easy-to-wear celebration of an ancient art form.
