Bright turquoise tunic with intricately embroidered silver and gold embroidery on the front and back panel. The neckline is an attractive split neck. The extraordinarily flattering, lightweight and cool design hits right above the knee but has slits on each side up to the hip (they could be closed to wear as a dress). There is intricate embroidery in silver and gold and white all along the front panel. The ¾ length sleeves each have an embroidered medallion right above the elbow on the side of the sleeve and embroidered trim. A large embroidered medallion adorns the back of the this garment. Fully lined and in very good condition. Biba is one of the most popular brands of traditional attire in India however the brand name has a complicated identity and history so I suggest you google before buying.
