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 a 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.
