Chintan Indigo Shirt by KARDO $275

The Chintan Shirt is a medium weight, open collar shirt with a boxy fit. We especially love this Indigo checkerboard block print, adorned 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 and learned his trade from his father Govind Narain. The hand Kantha stitching was done by Meera Devi, his wife. The hand embroidered bird is called a Barbet that frequents Delhi in Spring and is an homage to one that visited the home of KARDO’s founder everyday over the first lockdown in India in March 2020. KARDO creates handmade contemporary clothing, hand-crafted with minute detailing— designed in and produced from their workshop in New Delhi, India. They celebrate their craftsmen, conveying that it is not about WHERE your clothing comes from, but rather WHO made it, and under what conditions. You will find a tag on each garment highlighting the hands involved in the making of each unique piece.

About The Maker: KARDO

We're excited to offer to you, KARDO-- one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by traditional tailoring and workwear. They follow a ‘ONExONE’ production philosophy in which each piece of clothing is hand-cut and sewn by a single tailor from beginning to end — each item carefully hand-finished. Thoughtfully designed and produced at the KARDO workshop in New Delhi, India, each garment is labeled on the tag with information about each maker involved in it’s entire production process. KARDO honors traditional weaving, dying and printing techniques, using fabrics such as natural indigo denim and processes like block printing and Chikankari embroidery. KARDO actively supports and collaborates with handloom weaving communities throughout India in hopes of preserving these traditional techniques and reducing environmental impact.
