'full of surprised' mixed natural fabrics and leather short jacket

It truly is - full of surprises, that is, from the different fabrics (super soft brushed cotton for the sleeves, lambskin leather for most of the body, crisp denim-style cotton for the back) to varying hand-added texture, including the signature leather texturing the artist is known for, to patterns and colors, from handprinted accent on the lapel to metallic color-shifting painted design in the front and distressed back, to even unusual placement of pockets (two on top of the back). Light to medium weight, it is comfortable and pure fun. Even has a color-shifting vintage button and a few places with iridescent accents that are hard to capture on camera so they will be a total surprise! A truly artistic piece that is an easy match to many different outfits, from dresses to skirts, jeans and pants. Product code: S0530

Very brief cold water hand wash, a few drops of mild detergent, always separately, spin in washer and dry on medium, or air dry and finish in dryer to soften. Also can be dry cleaned by mild methods, or dry cleaned in dryer at home with a store-bought kit. Do not use stain removers, spot treaters or bleach pens. Contact us for any advice, if needed.

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.
