History: The word chinoiserie /ʃɪnˈwɑːzəri/ comes from the French term Chinois which translates as Chinese or, after the Chinese taste (as in style). Chinoiserie means a Western or, European interpretation of an Asian style and may not an necessarily be of an actual Asian design. Painted Bird has an array of garments we consider 'chinoiserie' from a number of Asian countries but for purposes of website search - we offer as one collection. We believe they are all beautiful, unique and wearable art for the now. Fashion designers have repeated these designs over a variety of eras. Enjoy!
