"Sevya" is a Sanskrit word that means "caring through service." Sevya is dedicated to preserving the indigenous art forms and cultures of India by supporting the artisan communities who uphold these traditions. All of Sevya's fair trade products are made by artisan groups using centuries-old craft traditions, with the finest natural fibers and materials. Sevya works with artisan cooperatives throughout India to develop contemporary styles and designs that showcase their traditional and eco-friendly methods of handcraft--including hand-loom, block-printing, tie-dye, and embroidery.
The Deena Tunic showcases the beautiful hand embroidery done by women artisans in Northern India on a soft, printed poly-silk blend. The classic sari print of this hand embroidered tunic is enhanced by the traditional Indian embroidery motifs on the front and back.
