Isha Jain celebrates India's textile and fashion legacies with the gorgeous design of this tunic. In cool turquoise blue, the tunic is sewn of chanderi, in which a 100% silk warp is combined with a 100% cotton weft, resulting in crisp, glossy sheer textures. Jain masters hand-block printing techniques in green, blue and black to adorn the tunic with floral and leafy patterns. Green silk taping trims the cuffs and hemline. Featuring lateral side slits and three-quarter length sleeves, the tunic is lined with cotton.

Named after a city in Madhya Pradesh, chanderi fabrics can be traced back to Vedic times; however, it was not until the 1970's that the cotton and silk blend fabric was developed.

Please note that due to the nature of the raw yarn used for weaving, chanderi textures are somewhat crisp.
