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

Our colorful, lightweight jacket is made in one of these studios. Tie-dyed by hand, each jacket is unique, with hand-embroidered paisley patterns on the front and one large paisley motif on the back.

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.

Lightweight Nepalese Travel Jacket
Lightweight Nepalese Travel Jacket
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests

Artisans working in Kathmandu, Nepal, use a traditional quilting technique called "trapunto" to add the detailing at the shoulders and yoke of this jacket. In trapunto, decorative patterns are sewn with lightweight batting to add texture without bulk. The artisans who make this jacket create the pattern freehand as they guide the garment through a treadle-operated sewing machine. Light enough to wear as a shirt or a jacket, it multiplies your travel wardrobe and helps you pack light. Hip length, with side welt pockets, turn-back cuffs, flattering princess seams, and an adjustable tie back.

Silk Paisley and Stripe Jacket
Silk Paisley and Stripe Jacket
(Based on 7 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.
