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.

Silk Paisley and Stripe Jacket
Silk Paisley and Stripe Jacket
(Based on 8 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.

Paisley Silk and Cashmere-Blend Cardigan
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

Traditional fabrics collected along a modern-day Silk Road journey are the inspiration for this luxurious, lightweight cardigan. On her travels between Persia (present-day Iran) and India, the designer of this silky-soft sweater searched through bazaars and vintage boutiques for examples of locally made fabrics. She used photo-editing software to scan the patterns and modify the colors to create a patchwork look that celebrates spring. Made using an equal blend of cashmere and silk, two of the softest, smoothest natural fabrics available—ones that have been traded along the Silk Road for centuries.

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.
