        Comments about Indian Silk Calico Reversible Jacket:

        Originally intended for wear at a conference where casual clothes were encouraged, I found this jacket could most graciously move into the evening (with a little accessorizing)! It is terrific for fending off chills, whether they are from over-zealous AC or cool Spring/Fall temps. It just makes you feel lovely to wear it, with the rich jewel tones and beautiful fabric...you feel like a princess!

                    Vibrant patches of silk sari fabric are assembled in this one-of-a-kind, reversible jacket. Crafted in Gujarat, in western India, where a double-ikat style of weaving called patola is a specialty of local artisans. The jacket’s shaping comes from a layer of lightweight quilting. Sari patches will vary; reverses to solid red.

                    Mali, in western Africa, is the largest cotton producing country in Sub-Saharan Africa, and one of the world's poorest countries. But artisans—especially women cloth dyers—have helped make their culture's famous cotton cloth into a worldwide commodity, bringing much-needed income to this unstable nation.

                    The Calico Museum in Ahmadabad houses India’s most important textile collection. The pattern of this silk-modal-blend tunic, called a kurta, is inspired by the museum’s early-19th-century printed fabrics made for trade with Europe. Hand-sewn pearlescent sequins add sparkle to the split V-neck design.

                    This elegant quilted jacket is perfect for travelers who want to let their colors shine—some of the time. It reverses from ivory-hued cotton to bright, hand-loomed, Madras-style plaid linen. Embroidered flowers and leaves decorate the entire front, back, and sleeves no matter which side is worn. Features fabric-covered buttons.

                    Evidence suggests that silk production existed in the Indus Valley as early as 2450 b.c., but the techniques truly arrived in India via Silk Route trade with China. Today India is second only to China in silk manufacturing. This hand-loomed silk shantung blouse is a classic cut that shows off the texture and play of light in the fabric. Front and back darts add shaping.

                    Under the Balinese sun, artisans decorate lengths of fabric using a traditional batik technique developed in the coastal town of Lasem on the neighboring island of Java. Lasem is known for centuries of cross-cultural exchange and immigration with China, and bright red colors are typical of Lasem batik, as seen in this reversible jacket. Lightly quilted and fully finished with pockets and frog closures on both sides. Reverses to a rich aubergine (see online). Golden batik-dyed floral patterns grace both sides. Please accept slight variations due to the nature of the dyeing process.

                    Intricately hand-tie-dyed textiles (called bandhani or bandhej) are a specialty of Gujarat in western India. Fabrics are pinched, pulled, and wrapped with thread before being dyed, creating patterns where the thread resists the color. Some of the best bandhani is found in Gujarat wedding saris. The vivid emerald and teal hues of this reversible, lightly quilted silk wrap jacket are the result of hours of dyeing to achieve the brightest possible colors. Please accept variations in the hand-dyed fabric.

                    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.

                    Boteh, mango leaf, even Welsh pear—the pattern most commonly known as paisley in the West goes by many different names. The teardrop-shaped, abstract floral comes in infinite variations, and here they’re embroidered on a jacket made of raw silk. Features split sleeves that can be folded back. Fully lined.

                    Silk saris get a second life in this innovative, handwoven jacket. Textile artisans in India use strips of vintage saris to form a loose basket-weave fabric. A typical sari can be anywhere from 10 to 30 feet long, so it’s a perfect source of vibrant fabric for up-cycled designs like this one. Colors may vary slightly as each jacket is individually made from hand-dyed fabric. Unlined. Front patch pockets.

                    Red cliffs and palm trees rise above a secluded stretch of sand at Varkala Beach on India’s southwestern coast. Locals also call it Papanasam Beach, which means “destroyer of sins,” and reflects the belief that a dip in the water can purify one’s soul. Our silk jacket is inspired by Varkala’s turquoise waters and calming spirit. It features hand-embroidered paisley and floral patterns on the front and back. Unlined. Knot buttons.

                    It’s a tough hours-long hike to India’s Valley of Flowers National Park, and acclimating to the 11,000-14,000-foot altitude takes days. But the effort is worth it for an otherworldly glimpse of alpine meadows thickly blanketed in native flowers. 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.
