'golden earth' mosaic coat

From the Mosaics Collection, this jacket is a true example of art couture. It has been meticulously crafted with hand-painted pieces of cotton over hand-dyed antique gold silk, with varying shades of the latter from gold to brown, to give even more depth to the mosaic design. This type of appliqué requires a lot of planning, care and precision, and the result is a true couture piece, complete with a pocket that blends into the design and a flattering A-line. The length allows it to be worn over short dresses as well for an impeccable ensemble. Raw edging and top stitching make it a modern, avant-garde piece and a true Palnitska piece. Medium toward slightly heavier weight due to two layers of fabric make it ideal for fall. Product code: C8248

Hand wash or dry clean.

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.
