Khushi Embroidered Border Camp Shirt
The short sleeve, standard fitting Khushi (meaning Happiness) camp shirt is an open collar summer style with a spread collar and hand-carved horn buttons.
This special edition shirt features intricate embroidery done entirely by hand using a special art form called Chikankari Embroidery. Our Chikankar artisans live in Lucknow, a specialty of that region. It takes a Chikankar a decade to learn and train and about 15 days to finish a panel of work on a single item. Once embroidered, the panels are sent to us and the item is then cut and sewn. Due to its special nature, please allow four weeks for delivery.
