edgy bohemian style with this beautiful embroidered stretch bolero jacket
The piece was upcycled from a brown, stretch cotton jacket. The sides have been embellished by hand with fabric from amazing pure cotton Banjara gypsy dresses that are COVERED in mirrors, sequins, beads, and gorgeous psychedelic embroidery. The jacket closes with a brown button.
*The jacket is small to medium.
*upper back: 15 inches from shoulder to shoulder.
*waist/hem (just below the bust): 30 inches.
*length: 14 inches from nape of neck to hem.
*sleeves: 12 inches from the upper shoulder seam to just below the elbow.
Wash gently by hand in cold water. Hang or tumble dry on low.
The fabric has been decorated in the Phulkari style by Banjara gypsies in the Punjab region of northern India, right near the Pakistani border. The word Phulkari means "flower craft." Women create these things to be worn by themselves or loved ones, and they are never offered in the marketplace. On very special occasions and ceremonies, full-body phulkaris are worn, and they are called Baghs, which means "garden." How awesome is that?
This is made from antique clothing and sari and may have signs of wear such as small, light stains or tiny holes. I do my very best to insure that each piece is as close to perfect as possible, but please remember that they came from items that have been worn and loved by one or more women. If there is something that is unacceptable to you, that I missed, I will gladly take the piece back.
I purchase saris from a single mother in Delhi, who runs her own business selling vintage and antique fabrics. She acquires these saris from women during trips to remote villages throughout India. In this way, she provides a much-needed income to these villages and to herself and her son. It's very cool being a part of this network!
