pure art antique silk and linen highly detailed jacket

This jacket is a true definition of a work of art. It is made with the finest materials to begin with - antique damask silk, textured Belgian linen and embroidered French linen, along with other silks and natural materials for trim, which the artist has painted many times, distressed many times, and repainted to produce every half tone imaginable in this color scheme, which is grayish-bluish with a touch of beige and green, with splashes of more vivid blue and aqua. No picture could possible do this creation full justice. Painstakingly assembled out of these different materials, it is further enhanced by overlay and texturing. A full row of buttons as a closure completes this truly unique, highly artistic look. Flattering A-line will work well for a range of sizes. PLEASE NOTE - you can see how it looks bluer in some pictures and more warm-colored in others; due to the depth of silk and the way it is brushed, it picks up the shades around accordingly, depending on the direction of lighting, so it's close to both shades.

Spot clean 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.
