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 front 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.


3/4-length sleeves. Snaps at the neck; side zip. 100% cotton. Made in China. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18).


Machine wash.

            This is very nice but I was disappointed to find that the trim on the bottom was only on the front. The images were obviously presented to obscure this and I find the implicit deception very disappointing for an institution like NG.

                  Comments about Chinese Embroidered Peony Blouse:

                  I love the color and cultural nod this blouse bring!. Initially I was worried that I wouldn't be able to wear this often, that it would be too "ethnic" for office or hanging out, like the clothes I bring back from overseas trips. But I wore this hanging out with a friend, and she really liked it. We were downtown, and I got a lot of creepy guys going, "You look fine!" Now, that wasn't what I was going for, but at least I know it looks good. I plan on wearing it to work soon.

                  The fit isn't great. I got a medium and while the length is great, it is a little tight around my chest and a little too big in the shoulders. I'm seriously considering getting it tailored.

                  I had to send my back because I ordered the large and it was way too tight through the bust (and I am not large 36B). It was a beautiful shirt, color and accents were very rich) and I hated to part with it but you need to be a petite gal to wear it!

                  Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

                  Chikan is the traditional white-on-white embroidery of Lucknow in northern India. Artists start by block-printing a design onto the fabric, which they trace using a variety of stitches to create a textured, lacy pattern. 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.

                  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.

                  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.

                  In China, seal carving is such a revered skill that it's regarded as one of the "four treasured arts," along with painting, calligraphy, and poetry. Seals, also called chops, are used to sign everything from official documents to works of art. Often topped with elaborate carved motifs, the "name" end is dipped in brilliant red seal paste and stamped onto the paper.

                  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.
