'cubist earthen-wear' abstract painting-to-wear jacket

The artist loves the colors of the earth, both toward neutral and richer in their hues, particularly mixed with black and gray, like in this fun jacket. The jacket is a tongue-in-cheek piece, with visual clues of both a button-down and a jacket in one piece - like a half-strip of buttons in the front that are for decoration only (the closure is one large button in front), or double collar mimicking a shirt collar, same for the cuffs. It is a slightly fitted but mostly straight-down design combining several types of cotton, both built-in and as appliqué. Medium weight, definitely not shirt-weight. The back, according to the artist, is in the style of cubism, particularly Braque comes to mind. An interesting piece that will fit into any wardrobe for year-round wear. Product code: M6996

Brief gentle wash, dryer OK.

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.
