Mumtaz Creations' handsome, handmade cotton men's shirt made from hand block printed Indian fabric in a traditional button down, collared style.

Kintu, a name meaning "first man" in Ugandan, is a unique print of red icons on a lightweight white base fabric. Hand block printing is an ancient Indian technique that uses hand carved wooden blocks, natural dyes, and salt water rinses to create original artwork on fabrics. Each plant based ink color is printed separately with a different block.

I tailored this fabric into a traditional style, casual fitting men's button down shirt. The collar and wrist cuffs are lightly reinforced, and it comes with a left-side chest pocket. The Kintu shirt is made with flat felled seams (much like a pair of jeans) for the best in comfort and professional finish.

This ethnic material dries very quickly, which is ideal for hot summers, traveling, and tropical climates. Perfect for adding originality to your wardrobe!

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. This material comes from Jaipur, India where we visited while living in India with our small children.

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: Machine or hand wash COLD. Hang dry, or tumble low heat.
