Men's Golden Hand Block Printed Indian Soft Cotton Button Down Shirt - Navy Pinstripe - Size XL - Fabrice G752
Casual. Comfortable. Original.
This unique Mumtaz Creations cotton shirt is wearable fiber art for everyday wear. Fashioned in a traditional button-down style, the Fabrice shirt is made of hand selected Indian cotton.
This material is medium weight with a soft, comfortable hand. This is a handblock print from Jaipur, where I went to purchase unique fabrics while living in India!
Handblock printing uses hand-carved wooden templates, and is an ancient art form in Jaipur. The Fabrice shirt has golden block prints. Stunning! The last photo shows a local man making fabrics with this ancient handblock process.
The collar is lightly stiffened and it comes with a traditional left-side pocket. I've made this shirt with folded seems for a professional feel and fit. This durable material is quick drying, which is ideal for hot summers, traveling, and tropical climates. Light ironing may be required.

*** 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. It is recommended to initially wash your garment in cold salt water to fix the colors. ***
Indian fabric also may have what others would call "imperfections". Tiny specks where the ink missed, miniscule snags in this delicate material, chalk marks from the manufacturer, etc. These are not blemishes, but an inherent part of this original, ethnic material. I try to note "marks" when noticeable, and do not sell any significantly damaged items.
Care instructions: Hand wash cold (initially) to minimize ink bleeding. Hang dry, or tumble low heat.
Custom orders welcomed, as I have plenty of extra material. However, I usually can not duplicate the same color/print since this type of material is not sold in multiples.
Thanks for looking and appreciating my Indian inspired men's shirts!!
