Inspired by a more opulent luxury, this piece has a bolder feel to it with its jungle jewel tones.
The satin cotton lining was a true coup de coeur as we say in French. Created by British graphic designer Emma Shipley, it’s a gateway to her fabulous universe of fantastic animals and lush jungle vibes. She is not only a talented designer but also gives back to the nature that inspires her. Part of her brand’s benefits proceed to the World Land Trust foundation for the safekeeping and restoration of endangered species’s natural habitat.
The body is made of hand weaved organic cotton in aquamarine and white stripes with violet designs. Crafted by our talented artisans in Mexico on the traditional backstrap loom.
Silk ikat sleeves handmade by our partner families in Uzbekistan in a jewel teal green hue add a touch of softness and light.
Our jackets are lightly padded which makes them perfect for the first chilly autumn days, the silk lining gives them an extra comfy feel. The vest is approximately 76cm long by 60 cm wide and fits comfortably sizes XS - L.
