A medium weight open collar boxy fit shirt in a checkerboard block print with hand Kantha stitch detailing and a bird embroidery.
The fabric was hand printed with natural indigo by Suraj Narain Titanwala, a renown block printer in Rajasthan, who is a 4th generation block printer, learning the trade from his father Govind Narain. The hand Kantha was done by Meera Devi, his wife.
The hand embroidered bird is called a Barbet that frequents Delhi in Spring. The motif is an homage to one that visited the home of Kardo’s founder everyday over the first lockdown in India in March 2020.
