Best Selling Men's Lightweight Hand Block Printed Indian Cotton Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt - White Floral - Regular Tall - Champei I876/J978
Mumtaz Creations' handsome, handmade cotton men's shirt made from ethnic Indian fabric in a traditional button down, collared style.
Champei is a Cambodian name meaning frangipani flowers. This unique shirt is made from hand-block printed fabric with blue vines and dark orange flowers on a lightweight white base. Captivating!
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 color is printed separately, resulting in a unique piece of art. This material has subtle wrinkles which adds to its character.
I tailored this fabric into a traditional style, casual fitting men's button down shirt. The collar is lightly reinforced, and it comes with a left-side chest pocket in the short sleeve version. The Champei shirt is made with flat felled seams (much like a pair of jeans) for the best in comfort and professional finish. I also made a tall version with extra sleeve length however these have no pocket.
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 during our time living in mainland India, and was tailored later in the US.
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.
