Devika S/S Embroidered Peasant Top

$330

DETAILS
The Devika (meaning, Little Goddess) is a vintage-inspired peasant blouse that makes an effortless statement with its feminine details and silhouette. Featuring full puff sleeves, a square yoke and soft gathers. 

This special edition blouse 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.

MATERIALS + PROCESS
Masterfully handwoven on a traditional foot pedal loom that creates a unique and unmatched texture. Its hand-spun yarns are naturally dyed by hand at a family-run workshop using natural minerals and plants. Its pattern is achieved using original hand-carved blocks and traditional block printing methods. 

Produced using sustainable practices that help improve the livelihoods and welfare of our artisan community makers and reduce the impact on the environment.
