The patch on the back of this jacket was created from an antique sari. The needlework on this is in the kantha style, hand done by northern Indian women on a silk sari. The fabric is a medium weight with a texture similar to raw silk. The embroidery is done in cotton and silk threads.
This is a truly unusual, breath-taking piece. I featured a similar sari on my blog. Follow this link for a more detailed description of this sari:
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!
