This semisheer, short-sleeve blouse features chikan work (chikankari, which literally means “embroidery” in the Urdu language) covering the front, along with a squared neckline and side vents.


Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18).


100% cotton. Hand-embroidered in Lucknow, India.

        Bought the white version, and so cannot comment of the fastness of the dye.

              I bought this to go with a cotton skirt, and it works very well for a slightly dressier, casual look.

                    Embroidered pattern is quite unique and very fetching - doubt this could be found in a chainstore at the mall. Non-standrd neckline and side vents add to exotic appeal. Examine with ZOOM feture online. Looks better than in online photo.

                    The asymmetrical collar of this traditional Chinese blouse has been popular since the beginning of the Qing dynasty in 1644. Noblewomen would have worn heavily embroidered jackets and vests with frog-button collars like this. Rural Chinese still wear a less ornate version as a work jacket. This red cotton blouse combines the open neck and easy-care fabric of the rural style with an embroidered hem that hints at the splendor of the Qing court. Red is the most auspicious color in Chinese culture, and the peony is called the flower of riches and honor.

                    Throughout India, embroidery and needlework are highly developed local folk arts. In the region of Kashmir, however, needlework is the domain of highly skilled royal craftspeople. Worked in flat chain stitch, embroidery flows like brushstrokes across this distinctive cotton canvas jacket. The cut is an updated and relaxed version of the popular Nehru style. Fully lined. Made in India.

                    The colorful genus of flowers known as lily of the Incas was the inspiration for the hand-embroidered design of this cotton blouse. Peruvian artisans hand-stitch a handful of petite flowers along with a wealth of soutache embroidery and crochet lace details at the bust and cuffs. Button-and-loop closures and a V-neck collar, along with comfortable stretch-knit vertical side panels, make this blouse perfect for work or weekends.

                    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.

                    Lacy screen-printed patterns and hand-embroidered flowers transform a classic T-shirt into an artful garment. The printed designs are inspired by the rice-powder drawings that women create in front of their homes in southern India. Called kolam, the drawings are meant to bring good fortune to all who dwell in the house.

                    Throughout India, Hindu festivals are accompanied by intricate rangoli—designs “painted” on the ground using rice, sand, even flower petals. These auspicious symbols are the inspiration for the embroidered designs on our black travel shirt. At the center of each medallion along the neckline is a small mirror, a traditional part of Diwali decorations in northwestern India. An ideal travel shirt, the soft knit resists wrinkles and drapes beautifully the moment it’s unpacked. Purple seams decorate the front and back.

                    This chocolate-brown jacket is inspired by those worn by Chinese officials in the early 20th century, but in a more relaxed cut. A length of traditional Miao embroidery adorns the placket. The Miao are China’s largest minority group, and are known for their more embellished clothing often depicting flowers and animals. Linen/poly blend with poly lining and micro-suede accents. Frog button closures. Slightly padded shoulders for structure.

                    Lavishly embroidered silk robes were a staple of Chinese royalty. These colorful coasters capture just a small glimpse of the ornate folk art once found in the Forbidden City in Beijing. Each is embroidered with the fu symbol for good luck and prosperity, which many families use in decorations for Lunar New Year celebrations. Six embroidered coasters, two of each color, are presented in a silk gift box.

                    Lace-making is a relatively recent addition to the vast textile history of the Indian subcontinent. In the 1800s, especially in the eastern coastal Godavari regions, lace-making was introduced as way for poor women to earn an income while still being able to stay home and care for their families. The lace insets that grace the shoulders of this cotton shirt are exactly the type of embellishment that women were creating for export more than 200 years ago. The front is also hand- embroidered with floral patterns in white and ivory. Features tabbed 3/4-length sleeves and a relaxed Mandarin-style collar.
