Madhuri L/S Embroidered Peasant Top
Our vintage inspired peasant Madhuri (meaning Sweetness) blouse has full long sleeves with elasticized cuffs. With soft gathers, an open front with decorative ties, its flowy silhouette conjures up warm days with a nod to 70's bohemian style.
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.
