'smooth as silk' mixed fabrics distressed holiday jacket

A truly perfect holiday piece, if you want something unusual, made out of top-quality fabrics, and with an amazing feel to it! The jacket combines super smooth satin finish thicker silk and silk velvet, both distressed by hand, after being hand-dyed, which reveals amazing shades of green with highlights, and added to those shades are a bit of gold and red. The reverse side of the jacket has been hand-painted in deep garnet and gold tones. Detailed throughout, it is a true art piece, lightweight, fluid and amazingly soft and smooth to the touch. A very rare combination of materials you may never see again from the artist. Product code: H7953

Hand wash.

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.
