Absolutely stunning hand embroidered top. Our best seller by far !!
Each kurti top is individually hand embroidered by a craftsperson from Lucknow, India where this type of embroidery originates.
No one top is exactly the same - the embroidery details will vary from garment to garment - so you will own a truly one off piece that has been painstakingly created.
Chikan, the intricate white on white floral embroidery, boasts a heritage that is centuries old and steeped in tradition. Skills were passed from generation to generation and zealously guarded, so much so that even today it remains popularly known as Lucknowi embroidery. We think it was introduced during the long Moghul reign in India where this exceptional embroidery was embraced by royalty and citizens of high standing.
100% Georgette. Hand or machine wash at 30 degrees on delicate cycle. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron.
It's very difficult to be exact about sizing and the UK equivalents as they are all handmade.... I have in the past experimented with saying S,M,L etc and may well get back to doing that!!
The sizing currently specified refers to the measurement across the chest from under one sleeve/armhole to the corresponding one on the other side. So a 46 would be 23" across, 44 = 22", 42 = 21", 40 = 20"etc
A rough guide is 38=size 8, 40=10,42=12, 44=14 and 46= 16.
