Black Bandhani Shell
Black Bandhani Shell
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

Textile arts flourish in the rural villages of western India’s Thar Desert: Wide swaths of hand-block-printed fabrics are laid in the sun to dry. Women in Rajasthan create multicolored fabric mosaics using embroidery and appliqué. And artisans throughout the desert region practice bandhani, a deceptively simple tie-dyeing technique. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments that drape beautifully and multiply your travel wardrobe.

The colorful genus of flowers known as lily of the Incas was the inspiration for the hand-embroidered design of this organic cotton chambray 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.
