Description of the Rich Rag Jacket,
designed, handwoven and constructed
by Jenny Jackett, the Textile Artisan
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 has an 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
