fluid silk crepe and cotton hand-painted vest

Part of the Santa Fe Collection, fun and pleasant to wear, this vest combines the fluid nature of thick silk crepe with signature brushed cotton appliqué that gives it a nice swing due to added weight and texture. Lots of handwork in this one - from appliqué to top stitching and little details like a row of buttons on the shoulder and a fun pocket. The last three pictures here show it as pinned to size small. As most items, it can be customized for size, length, and full closure, please ask. Product code: B6145

Hand wash.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items 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.
