Ethnic Men's Hand Block Printed Indian Woven Cotton Short Sleeve Button Down Pocket Shirt - Mauve Floral XL - Elias H817
Mumtaz Creations' handsome, handmade soft cotton men's shirt made from ethnic Indian fabric in a traditional button down, collared style.
This one-of-a-kind subdued mauve shirt has a stunning bleached floral print, and was perhaps one of my favorites to make.
The Elias shirt is made from fabric that I personally selected in Jaipur, India, the heartland of ethnic textiles. Hand block printing is an ancient technique that uses hand carved wooden blocks, natural dyes, and salt water rinses to create original artwork on fabrics.
I tailored this fabric into a traditional, loose fitting men's button down shirt. The collar is lightly stiffened, and it comes with a hidden left-side pocket. A spare button is included inside above the waistline. Made with folded seams for the best comfort.
This ethnic material dries very quickly, which is ideal for hot summers, traveling, and tropical climates. This durable weight cotton will wear well for many years.

A note about Indian Material - all cottons have been prewashed/preshrunk before sewing. Some cottons, particularly hand-printed ones, will bleed slightly in the first couple washes.
Indian hand-block printed fabric may occasionally have what others would call "imperfections" since it is handmade. Like with humans, imperfections give it beauty and character. It is expected to occasionally see small overprints and inconsistencies. These are not blemishes, but an inherent part of this original, ethnic material. I try to work around most blemishes while cutting and sewing, and do my best to note "marks" when noticeable.
Care instructions: Machine or hand wash COLD. Hang dry, or tumble low heat.
Thanks for looking at and appreciating my Indian inspired men's shirts!!
