Tribal Men's Hand Block Printed Indian Soft Cotton V Neck Casual Shirt - Handmade Primitive Print - Black on Ivory - Zebulon I879
This unique Mumtaz Creations' cotton shirt is wearable fiber art for everyday wear. Fashioned in a comfortable V-neck style, the Zebulon shirt has an ethnic, primitive flair.
This material is medium weight with a soft, comfortable hand. I've made this to fit loosely, and can be worn tucked in or not.
Zebulon is made from a handblock print from Jaipur, India, where I went to purchase unique fabrics during my time living in southern India! Handblock printing uses hand-carved wooden templates, natural dyes, and salt-water rinses in a 7 step process. Impressive! This black print on beige captures a variety of animals and designs.
The collar in our V-neck shirts is flat yet lightly stiffened to prevent it from crumpling when worn. The Zebulon pull-on shirt has a chest pocket. 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 water to prevent any further shrinkage or color bleeding. ***
Indian hand-block printed fabric may occasionally have what others would call "imperfections" since it is, after all, handmade. 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: Hand wash cold. 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.
We at Mumtaz Creations thank you for being here today and supporting artisans who focus on originality!
