Details

Handloomed cotton evokes the blue waters of Varkala beach on the Arabian Sea. By Isha Jain, this sleeveless blouse features pleats that cascade from an embroidered yoke with colorful kantha running stitches. Bias binding trims the armholes and scoop neck, and the top fastens with a fabric button at the back.

As is typical of genuine handloomed fabric, there are tiny slubs throughout. This occurs when a thread runs out, and the weaver extends it by twisting a new thread together with the old.

"Very nice, not exactly as shown"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This actually has multi-colored stitching in front, which I couldn't see in the photo (might be in the description, I didn't check). The color is not as pictured, it is actually a very definite turquoise/teal (greenish blue) and not the denim/royal blue (no green tone) pictured. This seems to be a problem with Novica items in general; I wish their photos were more true. ,i like this item a lot, though, and will enjoy wearing it. A little big in the underarm area (I am a US size 16).

"Many compliments."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This blouse is so cool and comfortable. I live in Texas and it is very hot and humid here. This was the perfect blouse for me. I would purchase more if there were different patterns to chose from. I have gotten many compliments when I wear this.
