The fabric of this tunic is slightly rough variety of handloom cotton. Because of its texture, when starched it maintains its shape like khadi fabric. The indigo stripes were the best match for jeans.
A block printed fabric with two shades of indigo was chosen for the mirror work on yoke and sleeves.

The indigo fabric had this block pattern of alternating stripes [four] and dots. The small square mirrors were worked over the dots. The medium round mirrors were worked on four evenly marked places. The sleeves had just the dots part of the fabric, with small square mirrors. A simple mirror work design with minimum effort. Ideal for people wanting to practice mirror work.
