Suzani Embroidered Jacket
Lost in Barcelona.
Somewhere between the textile merchant’s place on Roger de Llúria and my hotel, Plaça de Catalunya, I make a wrong turn. Twice.
“Turn right at the corner this time.”
I look up to find my personal Baedecker on a second floor balcony. Rather resplendent, I think, in a brightly embroidered jacket.
How could she know where I was going? It doesn’t occur to me to ask the question until I’m nearly at my hotel.
I do manage to inquire about the provenance of her jacket (Chennai by way of a vintage clothing shop on Portobello Road).
Our reproduction of it is gloriously spot-on.
