Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
(Based on 8 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.

Tailors in Kathmandu, Nepal, create this all-purpose travel tunic in a flattering mid-thigh length, with tab-sleeve cuffs. Treadle-stitched details based on the traditional trapunto quilting worn by Kathmandu’s Gurung tribe decorate the pocket, back, and left bottom side. A blend of purple warp threads and magenta weft threads creates a deeper and more versatile color than in fabrics that are dyed after weaving.

Paisley Flutter Tunic
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

During the 19th century, paisley shawls from India were all the rage in Europe and America. Later, in the early years of the 20th century, women who had inherited their grandmother’s heirloom shawls often refashioned the fabric into dresses and jackets more appropriate for the jazz age. This sheer butterfly-sleeve tunic is made in the same spirit of transformation, and updates a timeless paisley pattern in a contemporary style. Poly georgette with elastic ruching at the waist. Hits at mid-thigh. Camisole not included.

(Based on 9 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

The wax-resist dyeing technique of batik has a long history in Indonesia, where it evolved into high art over the past few centuries. Using a special tool that allows melted wax to flow as if through a fountain pen, artisans trace elaborate floral designs, curlicues, and dotted patterns onto fabric. When dyed, the wax-drawn designs remain vibrant. Similar patterns are hand-drawn here using metallic paints on aqua-blue 100% cotton, with hand-beaded details. 3/4-length sleeves.
