London-based streetwear imprint, maharishi recently unveils its Loom capsule comprised of two pieces. The small range sees a woven jacket and a poncho, designed to be suitable for the warmer seasons. Both of the items are constructed from striped cotton materials using a powerloom, hence the name of the series. The label draws a strong inspiration from sukajan-style jackets made by the traditional Vietnamese Hill Tribes using hand-loom cloths.

The woven jacket and poncho also have embroidery that references 60s tour artwork and the designs are intricately done by hand -- this accent is incorporated to recall the American soldiers who returned home with the sukajan jackets. The Loom capsule is not yet available but will be dropping online at maharishi's webstore.
