'palpable surface' gray green highly textured silk and leather jacket

This jacket is all about amazing texture - from the raised 'waves' of the thick woven silk that makes up most of its body, to the very rarely seen woven leather, it is truly a piece of textured art to wear. It has a slightly fitted overall shape, a gorgeous modern grayish green overall color, and it has been designed with ultimate attention to every single detail, from varying textures to just the right amount of distressing and highlighting, and a perfect mixture of all-natural fabrics (added to silk and leather are also cotton, softest smooth suede and hand-woven silk). Even the button - large hand-made European wood button in a shape of a triangle - is a perfect match for the overall look and feel. It has a bit of stretch and a gorgeous drape and is of medium weight, perfect for fall. The sleeves are on the long side, shown on model 5'8", and can be shortened upon request. One of the artist's personal favorites. Product code: T8141

Spot clean or dry clean.

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.
