Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
(Based on 13 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.

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.

Men's Aran Shawl-collar Cardigan
(Based on 27 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

In just a century since they first appeared, the textured wool sweaters of the Aran Islands have become “as tenacious an international symbol of Ireland as the harp and shamrock,” writes fashion historian Deirdre McQuillan. It wasn’t until the home crafts movement at the end of the 19th century that Aran’s distinctive patterns became known around the world. Today, from tourist shops to fashion shows, one can find sweaters based on stitches that were invented by grandmothers and great-grandmothers only a few generations ago.

(Based on 4 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

Textile arts flourish in the rural villages of western India’s Thar Desert: Wide swaths of hand-block-printed fabrics are laid in the sun to dry. Women in Rajasthan create multicolored fabric mosaics using embroidery and appliqué. And artisans throughout the desert region practice bandhani, a deceptively simple tie-dyeing technique. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments that drape beautifully and multiply your travel wardrobe.

The South American Alstroemeria is a genus of brightly colored flowers known as the lily of the Incas. Popular in floral arrangements, the 120-some members of the Alstroemeria family have an interesting trait in that their leaves are upside-down—that is, they twist so that what we see as the top of the leaf is actually the leaf’s underside.

This is a reproduction of the historical WWII flight jackets, originally issued in 1931 and then worn by the allied pilots who flew perilous missions over wartime terrain, and the lining features a re-creation of the survival maps of southern France. A surface of vintage French lamb leather adds to the authenticity.

Silk Paisley and Stripe Jacket
(Based on 18 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.
