Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. 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 trio of travel-ready garments. Made of a deep blue knit viscose rayon, these wrinkle-resistant separates drape beautifully and expand your travel wardrobe. The shirt features appliquéd circles of bandhani.
100% viscose rayon. Made in Jaipur, India. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18), XXL (20).
I purchased both the shirt and pants as a special gift because they looked so nice and National Geographic shipped them to Thailand at a cost of $56. When they arrived the recipient had to pay almost 2400 baht aditional cost which is equivalent to $80 which is a lot of money here but especially in Thailand. So never again!
I took a chance ordering this without being sure of the sizing. I'm 5'6", usually at 10-12, and ordered a medium, which fits perfectly. The skirt flows away from the body nicely; the entire outfit is very attractive. Because the top and skirt match, I can wear it to my office and look "business casual". I love the colors; there are lots of accent options for accessories.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
