This loose-fitting, flattering tunic suits a range of styles with its classic cut and timeless palette. The design may vary based on the cut of the fabric in each individual garment.

I was looking forward to this tunic, but was quite disappointed to find that it was not only darker than anticipated but, more importantly, the material is see-through - which for me means I'd need to wear some kind of camisole underneath; consequently, I have returned it. I really appreciate the sensitive and friendly customer-oriented approach of NG.

    Comments about Indian Peacock Paisley Tunic:

    What attracted me to this was the beautiful paisley, especially the brilliant crisp colors described as "peacock." What I received is of much darker shades, muted, more like a peacock in molt! Although still very pretty, it was quite a bit off the mark as far as color correctness, both to photo match and copy description. The very thin cotton muslin is quality fabric, soft and comfy, great in my climate for a shirt with longer sleeves. But, to wear as overshirt or with tank, etc, would have to purchase a size, maybe 2, larger.

      I love the colors and it is very comfortable and true to fit. Con's are that the side slits go up very high - no problem though as you do where a tank top underneath it as it is thin.

      I have ordered several tops from National Geographic and they have all fit well. The fit of this top was a huge disappointment to me as the bust line is too tight and, because I ordered an XL there is not a larger size for me to select. Sadly, I sent this top back. The colors are beautiful. I planned to wear this top to work and for casual as well.

            Ikat is a type of weaving where the pattern emerges according to how the warp and weft threads are dyed. This flattering split-V-neck tunic reproduces traditional Indian ikat patterns in easy-care printed cotton. The back of the tunic matches the trim on the neckline, hem, and cuffs.

            Gurgaon is one of India’s fastest growing cities, but family-run craft studios still flourish amid the international businesses that are fueling the economic boom. Our colorful, lightweight jacket is made in one of these studios. Tie-dyed by hand, each jacket is unique, with hand-embroidered paisley patterns on the front and one large paisley motif on the back. Paisley patterns, based on a stylized mango leaf, have been popular ever since merchant sea captains began bringing Indian textiles back to Europe and the U.S. in the 1700s. Two front patch pockets, fully lined.

            During the 19th century, paisley shawls from India were all the rage in Europe and America. Later, in the early years of the 20th century, women who had inherited their grandmother’s heirloom shawls often refashioned the fabric into dresses and jackets more appropriate for the jazz age. This sheer butterfly-sleeve tunic is made in the same spirit of transformation, and updates a timeless paisley pattern in a contemporary style. Poly georgette with elastic ruching at the waist. Hits at mid-thigh. Camisole not included.

            The Punjab region in northern India is brimming with highly creative artisans who make everything from ornate jewelry to detailed needlework bedding and fabric. This classic tunic represents those decorative arts with subtle tone-on-tone embroidery trimming the neck and cuffs and accented by a scattering of beads across the body and tiny bell buttons at the neckline. This embroidered tunic evolved from a typical Punjabi garment called a kameez, a loose cotton shirt with an airy quality to keep you cool. Made in India.

            Traditional Indian styling in a vibrant fuchsia pattern and textured lightweight cotton make an excellent travel outfit. The Indian city of Jaipur has been an artistic center since the 18th century and is known as the Pink City because of the stucco that was used to imitate red sandstone. It is in the Pink City that this bright ensemble is made as part of a thriving cottage textile industry. The loose-fitting style is flattering on any woman, and the crinkle fabric makes this ideal for pack-and-go travel. Expand your travel wardrobe by pairing the tunic with jeans or the skirt with a T-shirt. Made in India of 100% cotton.

            The swirling pattern of paisley—in Farsi called boteh, the word for a young flower or palm leaf—evolved from a traditional Kashmiri design. The Silk Road brought Kashmiri shawls to Europe where they became wildly popular. The Scottish mill that was first able to re-create the intricate design was in Paisley, Scotland, and gave the pattern its English name. This lightweight, 100% cotton, open-front jacket is made in India with an allover paisley pattern and hand-beaded accents. The greens, blues, reds, and pinks evoke the flowers in Kashmir's Shalimar Garden, built by 17th-century Mughal emperor Jahangir and famous for its nightly fountain displays.
