Jacket Kapou


Kapou (Assamese) - dove

For this jacket we use a thick eri silk fabric for a special structure and warmth. This jacket is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam and sewn in a small studio in South Delhi. The silk is called eri silk and cultivated by Assamese tribal communities South West of Guwahati. It is a wild silk and the moth leaves a hole in the cocoon as it has to be empty before it can be processed. Therefore it has a structure which is rather similar to linen. No chemicals or pesticides have been used during the process.
The jacket has a relaxed fit which can be adjusted to fit women of size S and M, in the size S/M as well as the size L/XL, constructed for women wearing L or XL.
The model wears size S/M. The jacket comes with a loose belt which can be casually worn with the jacket. The finishing is entirely with French seams as well as blind stitch. At the front it can be closed with a shell button. It has no belt loops.  
So comfortable, classic and made for every body type.

Please note: This product is entirely made by hand. Therefore, irregularities in thickness of yarn are characteristic to the craft of handspinning. The fabric and the dye will change over time - the silk is becoming softer and the dyes lighter.  Please cold wash only with mild detergent and dry in the shade. Do not soak.
