~* Gheri Waistcoat *~
Made from traditional hand woven Nepali Gheri fabric the colours in this waistcoat are simply stunning. Available in two beautifully fun yet stylish colour combinations in a vertical stripe design, the waistcoat has a long line and is trim in the waist. It is fully lined in fine black cotton, which is turned to the outside in the upper part of the double pointed collar, the lower in the gheri fabric – a really unique and sophisticated touch. The back of the waistcoat is in the same black cotton. There are two pockets, and the coconut buttons fasten in traditional style. Perfect to add a splash of colour to any outfit, these waistcoats are very popular in the folk scene, but sold well everywhere as they are simply so beautiful!
