The hand spun, hand woven Lahori jacket is made of pure raw silk, sourced from the Chaanga Maanga area in Pakistan. To create this garment, the silk threads are first twisted into a heavy weight yarn. Then, the jacket is hand painted on by a single artisan in his studio. The back of the jacket contains an image on the back  bearing the inscription “Lahore Lahore Aye” alongside an image of the iconic blue vespa, famous in Italian iconography, but also commonly found on the streets of Lahore. The painted kites hark back to the days of the Basant festival, still alive in contemporary memory, when kites would fill the air of all the major cities in celebration of Spring.

In some ways, all of Rastah can be understood as conversation with Lahore, the city we are based and a constant source for our inspiration.
