A lovely indigo silk shirt with bandhani polkadots. The handwoven silk fabric is hand tied at each dot, then over dyed in natural indigo - 6 to 8 times to receive the desired shade. This has raglan sleeves, a wonderful pointed collar, small side slits at the hem and matching fabric covered buttons. The sleeves have a full shape with two buttons at the cuffs. This looks great with dark denim and also the Maku wool pants. We also love it with black. It is wonderful on its own on top - and it is easy to layer because of the lightness of the silk - not bulky, yet warm once layered.
Fit - This has two sizes - s/m and m/l. If you typically wear a medium, we would recommend sizing up. The important measurements are below -
s/m - underarm to underarm - 22", sleeve length (approximation from edge of hanger (no shoulder seams because of the raglan sleeve) - 23.5", length - 26.5"
m/l - underarm to underarm - 24.5", sleeve length (approximation from edge of hanger) - 25", length - 27.5"
100% silk, made in India

The philosophy of the designer is one of care and mindfulness with every step of the process in production of these incredible garments. There are many artisanal traditions and hand techniques that the designer has been working closely with for the past decade. You can see the beauty of the handwork from first glance, and it goes further when you look inside. This is a very special collection, one that is carefully and beautifully produced.
