Sarc is an artisan group in Jaipur, India that has been established for more than 23 years. The group employs people in multiple villages and helps them build sustainable incomes for their families and their futures. By working within the community, this group helps each artisan with their personal goals, like sending their children to good schools.
This artisan group also helps preserve the practices and traditional skills found throughout the participating villages and gives those skills new life in each textile created. Each article of clothing this group creates is a unique work of art produced by the skilled handiwork of multiple artisans.
It really does take a village to contribute to each item’s beauty. Every step in the process—from making the fabric, stitching it together, adding embroidery, dyeing the fabric and applying any number of unique prints and designs—highlights the skills and beautiful traditions found throughout the 25+ villages involved.
This jacket is even prettier on than it is on the website. Warm but not heavy--I receive compliments on it every time I wear it. I highly recommend this lovely jacket !
Love the length, and side pockets, so comfy!
It really is a long jacket. Hard to see when ordering without a video. I washed it first as I always do with new clothing. It seemed a bit stiff and when washed & hung to dry, it was softer. After I try thing on and fit I always wash new items before actual wearing. 1X is my usual size at QVC/HSN and that is what I ordered. It is a somewhat large but that's ok - it's a jacket and I can put something under it that may be heavier than a thin shirt. I bought it for the good causes on this website - both at Veterans & the Animal section. It's a good weight for fall and spring as an outer jacket but not as a winter one, at least in the colder climates like NY.
