Big and Tall Men's Handmade Indian Hand Block Printed Indigo Woven Cotton Short Sleeve Button Down Chest Pocket Shirt - Giovanni H844
Handsome, handmade art print woven cotton men's shirt in a traditional button down, collared style.
The Giovanni shirt is medium weight cotton in a handsome indigo hand-block print. Hand-block printing uses hand-carved wooden templates, natural dyes, and salt-water rinses. The Indigo printing is a 10 step process. Impressive!
This Mumtaz men's shirt is made from amazing fabric that I personally selected on a trip to Jaipur, India, the heartland of ethnic textiles. Our family lived in India for two years, where I developed a deep appreciation for their vibrant colors, culture, and textiles. I pass along this admiration through making unique men's shirts from this material.
The collar of this shirt is lightly stiffened, and it comes with a blended left-side pocket. A spare button is included inside above the waistline. Made with folded, flat seams for the best comfort. This garment is pre-shrunk and made in a casual, loose fit.
This durable weight cotton will wear well for many years. Light ironing may be necessary.

A note about Indian Material - all cottons have been prewashed/preshrunk prior to sewing. Ethnic Indian fabric also may occasionally have what others would call "imperfections". Tiny white specks where the ink missed or slight overprints, after all, the material itself is hand-block printed by a human being. These are not considered blemishes, but an inherent part of this original, ethnic material. I attempt to cut/sew around such areas, try to note "marks" when noticeable, and do not sell any significantly damaged items.
Care instructions: Machine or hand wash cold. Hang dry, or tumble low heat.
Thanks for looking and appreciating my Indian inspired men's shirts!!
