Brocade PePlum jacket

Brocade is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabics, often made in colored silks and with or without gold and silver threads. The name, related to the same root as the word "broccoli," comes from Italian broccato meaning "embossed cloth," originally past participle of the verb broccare "to stud, set with nails," from brocco, "small nail," from Latin broccus, "projecting, pointed."

These smart ones above are from Olaya in Hauz Khas village. It's a kitschy little boutique and everything they stock, is made from ethically sourced village hand-crafts, and recycled waste materials.
The jacket itself, has been re-crafted out of an old traditional handloom saree. It's slightly quilted, and lined with fleece on the inside, so you can keep snug while looking a million bucks!

Dhoti pants.. A perfect mix of fun and Funk!
