hand-painted 'patina' mauve tank top

The colors in this top are fascinating - a very hard-to-achieve combination which was tricky to do, but the result is pure art. This 4-ply silk top has been hand-distressed first to produce an unusual color gradient from mauve to taupe to brown, and then hand-painted to imitate patina on metal for a very artistic effect and colors that can only be achieved by hand. Features a different texture insert on the side, some raw edging in contrasting color and interesting fuzzy texture, as well as signature pin tucks and top stitching. Product code: J8061

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.
