Throughout India, Hindu festivals are accompanied by intricate rangolidesigns “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.
Made in India. Rayon/Lycra® blend. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).
Very easy to wear day or night. Quite soft and comfortable fit. Really special beautiful embroidery at the neck. The contrast color on the seams makes it a stand out any place it is worn. A real winner.
