In Charazani, on Bolivia’s western border, there are only two seasons - wet and dry. During the wet season the people harvest flowers and plants that they dry to be used in rain ceremonies through the arid season. The drying process changes the flowers’ colors, with some remaining bright and some fading. These floral hues, along with historic Charazani textiles, inspire the design of this hooded vest. Zip front. Aymara artisans working in La Paz, Bolivia, hand-loom this unique piece using 100% alpaca fiber.

Nepalese Velvet Jacket
Nepalese Velvet Jacket
(Based on 6 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests

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.

Shalimar Garden Paisley Jacket
Shalimar Garden Paisley Jacket
(Based on 5 reviews)
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.

Silk Paisley and Stripe Jacket
Silk Paisley and Stripe Jacket
(Based on 9 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests
The lacy teardrop shape known as paisley originated in Persia and came to be closely associated with the work of Indian Kashmiri weavers. As trade between Asia and Europe expanded in the 18th century, demand for the pattern was so great that weavers in the town of Paisley, Scotland, created their own version of the design, giving the pattern its Western name. Incorporating these curved and leaflike paisley shapes, our jacket is handcrafted of 100% silk. Artisans working in India embellish each jacket by hand with embroidery and beadwork, guaranteeing that no two will be exactly alike. Fully lined.
