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.


With handmade velvet, backed with black satin brocade, this jacket is just as striking when paired with an evening skirt during the holiday season as it is with jeans year-round. Features a stand up collar and frog button closure.


Handmade by artisans in Nepal. Velvet is 100% cotton. Lining is 100% polyester. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).

Machine wash.

    Comments about Nepalese Velvet Jacket:

    The photo does not do this jacket justice -- the red color is fantastic with black slacks and a sleeveless mock t-neck. I did not expect to like this as much as I do, perfect for holiday office party. A string of pearls topped off the outfit.

    Grain of salt re teenager comments

      Comments about Nepalese Velvet Jacket:

      Star ratings re teenager comment need to be taken with a grain of salt. My 15-yr. old says this is uncomfortable, the only time she ever said that. I purchased a short sleeve black shirt for her to wear under this (like the model photo), but that did not help - don't know if a long-sleeve would improve comfort, but not willing to try. Baggy for my teenager. I still like it, for someone else.
