Kutch Handwoven Embroidered Tribal Jacket in Teal Blue
This Indian teal blue jacket has been crafted from a handwoven Kutch shawl. The shawl takes approximately 2-3 days to weave and is woven from a blend of pure wool and acrylic yarns. The fabric is soft and luxurious to touch.
It has beautiful white ethnic weaves throughout the body and tiny mirrors embroidered into it.
The jacket comes in two free sizes and has three-quarter sleeves. It can be worn loose or belted over leggings, jeans, shorts, dresses and skirts.
This shawl has been sourced from Bhujodi Village in Bhuj, Gujarat where nomadic tribes hand weave shawls and blankets for their community. The "Vankars" are the weavers of Kutch who travelled from Rajasthan centuries ago picking up and spreading weaving and embroidery traditions along the way. This village is also known as the village of weavers because of the settlers and the songs of warp meeting weft that linger in the air.
Please excuse a slight difference in color between the image and actual piece as the product is hand woven and the exact color cannot be captured by a camera.
