"rhapsody in copper" cool touch patchwork tunic

Really an ode to color copper - all the fabrics here are different shades of it, from light to dark and very dark, with some rust mixed-in, and just enough black to make it an easy pairing with bottoms. The tunic also combines different materials from silk to brushed distressed viscose, which is so velvety to the touch, and cool against your body, making it perfect for the summer. Patchwork construction throughout, including different cuffs and top-stitching, with signature embroidery, texturing, distressing, and raw edging, just a touch. Can be made shorter or longer if needed, please ask. Product code: I9302

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.
