'cranberry wine' reversible metallic silk and leather short vest

This vest is reversible, with metallic deep cranberry and silver as primary colors on one side and deep brown and silver on the reverse - two totally different looks. The vest is made of silk and fine lambskin leather, with silk strips acting as connectors in the design, to allow for a nice flow which leather is not always capable of. It has been embroidered throughout, adding artistic texture to the piece, and hand-painted in subtle shades of wine, silver, blue and rust. Shown without a closure, front closure will be added for both sides. Product code: Q5817

Dry clean.

All garments arrive to you freshly cleaned, unlike regular store-bought items, and are ready to wear.

Dry-cleaning is ok on most items but only if gentle methods are used and the cleaners are familiar with cleaning hand-painted delicate fabrics.

To freshen up any item that doesn’t need deep cleaning simply mist it with a water spray and put in the dryer on medium heat for about 15 min.

All garments can be hand washed. Wash each item separately, cold water only, minimal amount of detergent, and as briefly as possible, no soaking. The wash can be followed by a spin in the washer and dried on medium heat until dry. Knits should be hung-dried and when dry, finished in the dryer for a few minutes to soften.

Hand-pressing may be necessary after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.

Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.

For more tips and details please refer to the cleaning instructions card included with your package.
