'natural zen' colorful patchwork art jacket

The colors of this jacket are so soothing, despite their brightness - probably because they are drawn from nature, like many of the artist's pieces. Bright gras green with cerulean blue is enhanced by gorgeous teal and rich wine shades, with many other shades in between. Very detailed patchwork construction incorporating various natural fabrics like silk, cotton brocade, silk crepe and others, distressed, hand-dyed multiple times and then painted over to achieve these vivid shades. Pleasant medium weight. Button closure will be put in before it goes out. Product code: J0557

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.
