Chetan Band Collar Embroidered Shirt
Our new band collar shirt, Chetan (meaning Visible, Conscious) has a standard fit, a band collar and hand-carved buttons. We used a selvedge edge finish throughout which enhances its uniqueness and durability.
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.
