Cotton Angarkha (top) in Hot Pink Bandhej design with crisp yellow cotton dhoti pants.
A little note about this special style- 'Angarkha', refers to a traditional upper garment worn by men in the Indian subcontinent which overlaps and is tied to the left or right shoulder. The angarkha was a court outfit that a person could wrap around himself, offering flexible ease with the knots and ties appropriate for wearing in the various principalities of ancient India.
And one on the print - Bandhani, also known as 'Bandhej'; is a type of tie and dye textile which is adorned by plucking the cloth into many bindings, that form a design. Practiced mainly in the Indian states of Rajasthan, Gujarat and some parts of Uttar Pradesh, the word Bandhani is derived from a Sanskrit word 'Bandha' which means 'to tie'.
This is a handicraft product made by the local artisans of the beautiful “Pink City” Jaipur in India. Each piece is unique and lovingly created by hand.
