detailed knit hand-painted long vest in teal and fire

The vibrant colors and detailing of this vest are pure art. From mixed fabrics - the body is made out of glowing knit silk, with crinkled silk chiffon inserts and hand-pleated front panel - to small details like hand-stitching, chiffon overlay, embroidery and more - it combines all the artist's favorite techniques, topped by rich hand-coloring and flattering A-line construction. Currently the vest has one front button closure, but on request can be turned into a fully-closed dress-like piece. Many long-sleeve and sleeveless tops are available to be worn under. Product code: L0178

Dry clean or spot clean with water.

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.
