Centuries ago, Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic cultures met and mingled in Kashmir as artisans from Central Asia and Iran settled in the area. One of the many exquisite arts for which this area is known is the intricate chain stitch called ari, which served as the inspiration for our timeless 100% merino wool jacket. Rich red and spice-hued flowers on a canvas of black wool are typical of the elegant coverlets and scarves that have been embroidered in Kashmir for centuries. The flattering fit includes a mandarin collar, embroidered buttons, side pockets, and side slits. Lined. Made in India.

Dry clean.

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.''

I was disappointed in this item and returned it. It was not as shown in the picture, it was dingy and faded instead of nice strong colors, it looked faded in color compared to the one shown in the catalog and the black was more grayish. Very unstructured like a blouse not a Jacket. Would not recommend.

      This jacket is beautiful, but I ordered one a few years back (for more money) which also had embroidery on the back, which was even better.

          Comments about Kashmiri Floral Wool Jacket:

          The embroidered design on this "jacket" is beautiful and the colors are very attractive. This is more of a tunic than a true jacket - it is VERY lightweight and flowing, not meant to keep you warm. Several reviewers commented on the long sleeves, and that's true, but it was a plus for me because I usually find that sleeves are too short. The size Small that I ordered runs slightly big. I look forward to wearing this.

              It was a beatiful garment but completely wrongly sized. Sleeves too long, shoulders too wide, and in general not appropriate to anyone shorter than five foot ten!

                  I'll mostly wear this to work. The handiwork is beautiful. But the size is a bit big for a large, which I usually wear. The sleeves are long, but the fit across the mid-section is good. I'll roll up the sleeves.
