These unique garments have been handwoven using a weft of silk fabric

strips on a warp of mercerised cotton and a Triacetate/Acrylic yarn.

The garment is then constructed to highlight the pattern created by the

different coloured silk fabric pieces.

The semi fitted jacket with soft shoulder pads and chinese knot buttons

hasan internal welt pocket and is lined with a manmade fabric.

This handwoven fabric which is at least 80%silk is a very comfortable

weight. The jacket can be worn closed on its own or open over

lightweight or warmer tops. 

The jacket recovers quickly from packing, being almost crushproof,

and is a pleasure to wear with long or short skirts or long pants.





Warp of fronts is mercerised cotton and rayon. Weft is woven with silk fabric strips. See process description at left.
