Blouses or shirts were originally tunics with shoulder tabs and reached down to the knees. However, this style is not very comfortable so a more modern cut was adopted. The sleeves remained wide and are usually sewed selvage to selvage (ie the complete width of the fabric woven on a 27 in loom). The top of the sleeve is shaped and gathered as a modern shirt. Traditionally woven from linen but now more often cotton and cotton/linen blend is used. In some cases, only the decorative parts are hand-woven – the body of the shirt is bought material.
