About TunicLove

TunicLove creates the finest tunics, emphasizing the use of natural hand-woven fabrics and designs from places which have rich and varied traditions. Its designs are imbued with contemporary fashion, embellished with techniques such as block printing and real embroidery, and its expert craftsmen and artists strive at every step to create tunics that feel just as beautiful on the inside as they look on the outside.

TunicLove also focuses on supporting social endeavors that are important in today's world, and creates wealth and stability by nurturing the next generation of social entrepreneurs. Equally important is TunicLove's 'You Buy 1-We Gift 1' policy that helps children who need it most -- each tunic that is sold is matched with a gift of basic clothing to a child in need.
