This lightweight raw silk spring coat has a fresh, crisp silk texture. It is a one size model with a smart sleeve insert and a spacious cut.
The beautiful look of the silk is obtained with a special weaving technique. The chain (the warp) consists of long, fine silk threads. The weft consists of about two meters of uneven threads of entwined cocoons. The result: Dupioni silk, a tightly woven fabric with a beautiful sheen.
Dupioni silk is woven from the leftover waste from silk cocoons. For this jacket, the fabric is hand-spun and woven in Bihar by a weavers association supported by the government.
The jacket has dropped shoulders that taper into half-fitting sleeves. The narrow sleeves give shape to the oversized panels. The jacket has two wide welt pockets on the side and hits just below the knee. The coconut button closure is an elegant concealed button closure.
The lining of the jacket is a very light fabric of 50% silk and 50% cotton. This one is hand woven by a Fair Trade registered organization in West Bengal. Subsequently, the liner was hand printed in Bangalore (block print) in blue-white-pink polka dots with natural resin dyes.
