Throughout India, embroidery and needlework are highly developed local folk arts. In the region of Kashmir however, needlework was the domain of highly skilled royal craftspeople. Worked in a flat chain stitch called ari, embroidery flows like brushstrokes across this distinctive cotton canvas jacket. The cut is not fitted, but is rather an updated and relaxed version of the popular Nehru style.


Hand-embroidered in India. 100% cotton canvas. Full poly lining.


Dry clean only.

In Himalayan Kashmir and northern India, chain stitch embroidery is a refined art, worked using cotton, silk, or wool. An awl-like hook called an ari is used instead of a needle to create a refined ''cobbler's stitch,'' which allows the craftsman to cover a larger area of work in a shorter time. This is one of the reasons why ari embroidery often covers large areas, if not the entire body, of the textile or garment it adorns.


Royal women in Kutch, in northern India, were major patrons of early ari artists, and commissioned work covered in typical Persian motifs of peacocks and flowers. So delicate are some of the best examples of this embroidery that the most intricately adorned fabrics are said to be ''under ari's spell.''

Although I am a casual dresser, I do enjoy dressing up when going out, and this jacket is stylish and attractive. Unfortunately, it is also very big for me, and I am going to have to alter it to fit. Fortunately, I am capable of doing that, but for someone who is not a sewer it could be an expensive problem.

    Comments about Indian Embroidered Floral Jacket:

    I love the classics, with a twist, and this jacket fulfills both requirements. I've worn it twice, and the compliments and "where did you get it" queries were numerous. It was perfect for Easter Sunday, and I've also worn it to dinner. It's now a wardrobe mainstay in my closet...will be there for years.

      Comments about Indian Embroidered Floral Jacket:

      My wife loves this jacket. It is beautiful and a great buy for the money. We bought a large because of the comments that it fits large and had to return it for an extra large. The sleeves were too long on both of them. I would like to see them shorten the sleeves somewhat

          The gift receiver LOVED it. She's admired it many times in the catalog and was pleased to receive it as a gift. I followed the advice in the ad that said to order a smaller size becuz the jacket ran large.

                Comments about Indian Embroidered Floral Jacket:

                This was one of those "must have" purchases, i.e. the "if I don't buy this I know I'll be sorry" scenario! I wore it for the first time yesterday to attend church. Received lots of compliments. The variety of colors in the needlework makes it possible to pair it with many different types of jewelry, and shoes, depending on the occasion.
