the abstract quilting on this artful jacket makes it interesting and the handloomed fabric makes it special.
the yarns are spun by hand and then the fabric is woven on a handloom by a co-op of women weavers in central india. this style of handmade cotton fabric is called khadi, a traditional indian fabric that gives a lofty and soft feel. the co-op provides training, childcare and ethical employment to village women who otherwise would have few alternatives. this organization also operates a handloom school to further help sustain the declining craft of sustainable handloom weaving.
