fluid patchwork tent tunic in blues

The shape and the bias cut makes it work for a variety of sizes. Fuller toward the bottom, it is perfect for layering, both over and under, and the beautiful blue colors of the patchwork silks are easy to work with for matching. The artist used various silks which were hand-dyed or painted involving various processes (like shibori style for the very top layer, or brushed sueded silk in the middle). Product code: B2975

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.
