                Indian textiles have been influencing world fashion for centuries. In the mid-19th century, women clamored for paisley patterns on Kashmiri shawls. In the mid-20th century, the peace-and-love generation popularized bold graphics and Nehru collars. This relaxed tunic updates a ’60s style with a pattern inspired by raindrops on a lake. Semisheer 100% cotton with a split V-neckline and side vents.

                Our embroidered tunic brings a burst of colorful flowers to your spring wardrobe. Artisans in a family-run Delhi workshop use nine shades of hand-dyed cotton thread to embroider flowers along the collar and sleeves of a traditional, split-V-neck cotton tunic. Yellow whipstitching along the cuffs and hem adds a finishing touch. Made in India.

                Evidence suggests that silk production existed in the Indus Valley as early as 2450 b.c., but the techniques truly arrived in India via Silk Route trade with China. Today India is second only to China in silk manufacturing. This hand-loomed silk shantung blouse is a classic cut that shows off the texture and play of light in the fabric. Front and back darts add shaping.

                In the early 1900s, Mahatma Gandhi championed a homegrown Indian textile industry as a means of national self-sufficiency.

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.

                A paisley print in peacock hues decorates this lightweight, traditional Indian, split-V-neck cotton tunic. 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. 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.

                Knit by artisans in Arequipa, Peru, this pullover’s incredible softness comes from a blend of baby alpaca fiber and silk. The striped pattern and blue, brown, and gray hues are inspired by the terraced landscape of Machu Picchu. A local Quechua boy led Hiram Bingham to the site in 1911, and National Geographic research grantees explored and mapped the site over the next several years.

                Women in a textile workshop in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley take scraps of silk left from the production of saris and weave them into a uniquely textured yarn. Knit or crocheted, they transform what would otherwise be discarded into cozy winter accessories that brighten the dreariest days. This set is decorated with beads and traditional mirrorred disks that are intended to ward off the evil eye.

                Silk saris get a second life in this innovative, handwoven jacket. Textile artisans in India use strips of vintage saris to form a loose basket-weave fabric. A typical sari can be anywhere from 10 to 30 feet long, so it’s a perfect source of vibrant fabric for up-cycled designs like this one. Colors may vary slightly as each jacket is individually made from hand-dyed fabric. Unlined. Front patch pockets.
