Story Behind the Art: The Kurtis are made by group of artisans hailing from the state of Bihar in India. To support their families back home they have settled in big cities like Mumbai where they make these beautiful Kurtis. The kurti fabric is woven into beautiful designs on power looms by artisans who have been following the trade for generations, toiling day and night to give the cloth its intrinsic beauty and cool nature. Besides weaving, a fair number of kurtis have further attractive designs embellished on them by skilled artists. Color block printing by hand, hand-painting by talented painters and sewing on bejeweled embellishments by craftsmen to produce unique designs are just some of the efforts that go into making these extremely comfortable and fashionable kurtis.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
Stiffer, heavier, gaudier, and not as shapely as in the photo. It's not as bad as that may sound, but for the price, I wish I had not bought it. I wore it a couple of times at Christmas. I found the beads on the flappy sleeves a bit annoying.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color is brighter and more rusty and the beads are goldish, not black as they appear in the photo.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Ok
How accurate was the sizing? It's a bit large, but tight across the bust
Unfortunately, I ended up having to return this item because it was only available in Large size when I ordered it. While I normally wear a Medium, I thought that perhaps a large would be all right, given the roomy cut of the top. However, I was swimming in the large, which was very unflattering, so it seems like the sizes tend to run a bit bigger than average. Very well made, but one of the beads had fallen off in the packaging before it was even opened. It is a beautiful top, but it certainly is very flashy. Party material only!
The top is actually a burgundy color more so than the "cranberry" looking shade that is pictured. Also, the bead work appears blackish in the photos, but it is much more like a bronze-copperish color instead.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? no- looks more cranberry in the picture- actual color is more like a burgundy shade
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very well made, but one of the beads had fallen off in the packaging before it was even opened.
How accurate was the sizing? So-So. The "Large" was a little oversized
What a beautiful tunic. I have been wanting one for a very long time, but they are a little costly. But decided to splurge and get this one. I am glad I did. The bead work is so intricate but well made. Sometimes the beading is loose and you are afraid to wear it lest they fall off. It is a little heavy because of all the beadwork. But wow! What a great tunic. I highly recommend.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
I love this top. I bought it to wear Christmas day, to be able to wear over leggings and be comfortable but still a bit dressy and it worked perfect. I was so impressed with all of the bead detailing on both sides of the tunic. I was originally concerned that if the sizing was off at all, that this piece wouldn't give or stretch, but the fit was so perfect there was no problem at all. It is very flattering, very feminine and I just love the way the arms move. Because of the slits on the ends of the sleeves the sleeves move and drape downwards. It feels wonderful on I plan to buy it again in a different color-way!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Pretty close
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Wonderful quality and beautiful detailing
What a pity I had to return this. I loved it so much that I ordered a medium, knowing I am small, pretty small. So I had to return it and will keep hoping that OS will order XS and S in this exact top. This top is a keeper, will never go out of fashion.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Beautiful work and color. Design was great, pretty sleeves. Can't find anything like this in stores. Very high quality. And lined, so no need to wear a cami.
The top is stunning. The beads look black in the picture but they are bronze which makes the top look a little lighter in color than the picture and much more beautiful. This is truely a royal piece of clothing.
