The trapunto quilting that adds eye-catching detail and texture to this reversible vest is a traditional decoration found on the garments of Nepal's Gurung tribe. 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 merlot-hued velvet that reverses to black satin brocade, this vest doubles your wardrobe options and is just as striking when paired with an evening skirt during the holiday season as it is with jeans year-round. Features a collarless cut and frog button closure. Handmade by artisans in Nepal.


Machine wash.

    Comments about Nepalese Velvet Vest:

    I was disappointed that the vest runs small but more disappointed that they were out of stock and it could not be replaced. I love the color and texture, guess gals in Nepal run smaller.

    Comments about Nepalese Velvet Vest:

    I would have preferred the color in the catalog, but it wasn't available, but because I have the same piece but as a jacket (and I love it), I was sure I would like it, even though it was all black. However, the size "large" was way too small; it should've been labeled small, as it did fit my daughter, who wears a size 6!

      Shoulder/bust seems small, waist/hip very roomy.
      Exchanging for next size up.
