Bamboo Jacket

Bamboo jackets and vests were originally strictly utilitarian. They were meant to be worn under silk clothing they prevented the silk from sticking to the skin and acquiring perspiration stains. Nowadays they are admired for their beauty and appreciated for the craftsmanship involved in making them. They are also perhaps the only Chinese garments one could wear without worrying about getting damaged.

Bamboo tubes are threaded together with cotton string to create a diamond pattern over the entire jacket. The edges are finished with beige silk, and a silk closure sits at the nape of the neck.
