Vibrant patches of silk sari fabric are assembled in this one-of-a-kind, reversible jacket. Crafted in Gujarat, in western India, where a double-ikat style of weaving called patola is a specialty of local artisans. The jacket’s shaping comes from a layer of lightweight quilting. Sari patches will vary; reverses to solid red.


Made in India. Silk with silk/poly blend lining. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Dry clean.

Ikat is a type of weaving where the pattern emerges according to how the warp and weft threads are dyed. The name comes from a Javanese word meaning "to tie or bind," and it refers to the process of coloring the threads. Bundles of cotton, silk, or wool are either tied or painted with wax according to predetermined patterns. When the bundles are dipped in dye, the wrapped areas resist the color— similar to tie-dye. The bundles may be dyed, rinsed, dried, and re-dyed multiple times.


Then, as the threads are woven, patterns emerge in precise blocks of color, or soft blended patterns. In double ikat, both the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads are dyed, a process that takes great skill and planning to envision the final textile.


Although the word has Southeast Asian origins, ikat is common in South America, too, especially among pre-Columbian indigenous cultures. Guatemala especially is known for its double-ikat woven cotton, which is often created on manual back-strap looms. Uzbekistan in Central Asia is famous for intricate silk ikat weavings that came to Europe and Japan via Silk Road traders. Because of the great time and skill involved, the most complex ikat fabrics are traditional symbols of prestige and power.

    Comments about Silk Sari Patch Jacket:

    I usually wear Mediums. I purchased M and it was WAY too big. Exchanged for a Small which is still a little large through the shoulders, but just a tad snug through chest. Since it's an open fit, that shouldn't pose a problem. Otherwise, good. The colors are not standardized, so mine has significantly less deep blue and green in the patching than the model picture. Still, I have gotten several compliments on it on its first wearing.

        Jacket is great however no care instructions accompanied the jacket. Is it dry clean only or washable?

        Comments about Silk Sari Patch Jacket:

        Fabric is beautiful although some of the colors are a bit odd. Returned it because the fabric pieces, although the same size on each side of front opening, aren't aligned. Have to have one side of jacket lower than the other to line them up.

          Comments about Silk Sari Patch Jacket:

          I ordered this hoping to take it on a trip this spring. The small was too large for me (I usually wear petites but was hopeful). In addition, the colors in the photo appeared to be a true red but the colors in the jacket were more of a rusty red. It just was not as wonderful as I had hoped so back it went.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Silk Sari Patch Jacket:

                I often like your jackets and sweaters and own at least one. But the sizing is too generous for Small (4-6). I just cannot wear them. You should consider adding an extra small size for those women who do wear a true size 4.
