This velvet long coat marks new milestones for Rastah as we continue to experiment with fabric and production processes. The grey distressed viscose velvet fabric is uniquely block-printed with a new technique and pattern exclusive to Rastah’s studio. The design features a host of ‘wild’ imagery, creating a rich tapestry of flora and fauna and evoking the feeling of a lush Indian jungle.
Pops of colour, added through hand embroidered detail work, add playfulness and depth to this chic and otherwise formal garment. The peacock is a particularly important regional motif and a longstanding feature of Rastah’s iconography. To us, the peacock is a perfect embodiment of the effortless regality and vibrance so easily associated with subcontinental aesthetics. The back panel of the coat features a large, colorful iteration of this subject, painstakingly hand printed by a single artisan, Aslam Mirza, a long term collaborator with the house. The inside of the coat is lined with pink satin silk, while along the collar there is a visible wooden show button.

Block-Printing is an ancient Asian method of dyeing fabric. It involves intricately carving wooden blocks by hand and then using natural dyes to “print” onto the fabric. Block-printing is an environmentally friendly and durable technique we use on several pieces.
Handwoven fabrics are woven by hand by using a handloom. Handweaving produces zero pollution as it does not require electricity or any machinery. It is an artisanal craft that is inherently time-consuming. The outcome is timeless pieces of clothing built to last.
Patchwork involves handsewn patches of fabric that are then sewn onto our products. These patches are often block-printed as well. The result is a beautiful eye-catching patch that helps distinguish our pieces.
