Neeta Crop Jacket
This new collection features some of my personal favourite pieces to emerge from Indian label Ka-Sha. I discovered Ka-Sha on our last trip to India and fell instantly in love. Their only Australian stockists, pieces are made just for us in the tiniest quantities (3 or 4 of each style maximum).
The Neeta crop jacket is both a bold statement and cosy addition to your wardrobe. Featuring gathered sleeves and a shawl-like fit through the back, it pairs divinely with jeans, high waisted skits, or over dresses for a stunning extra layer.
The hand-woven fabric is clamp-dyed and finished with contrasting red hand-stitching around the edges. The craftsmanship and dying techniques representing traditional textile and craft techniques from different groups around India.

When we visited their studio in Pune (India) – which is both their shopfront (although most pieces are made to order) and sewing room, we saw rugs, scarves, and backpacks made from their fabric scraps. It is a beautiful thing to see!
