Boldly elegant in tangerine, this tunic by India's Isha Jain exalts the legendary beauty of chanderi fabric. A 100% silk warp is combined with a 100% cotton weft, resulting in crisp, glossy sheer textures. Jain masters hand-block printing techniques in a darker shade of tangerine to adorn the tunic with floral and leafy patterns, and a dark brown hue for the neckline, sleeve cuff and lower panel. Fuchsia silk taping trims the cuffs and hemline. Featuring lateral side slits and three-quarter length sleeves, the tunic closes with two concealed hook-and-eye closures and is lined with cotton.
Named after a city in Madhya Pradesh, chanderi fabric can be traced back to Vedic times; however, it was not until the 1970's that the cotton and silk blend fabric was developed.
Please note that due to the nature of the raw yarn used for weaving, chanderi textures are somewhat crisp.
