'summer tranquility' detailed distressed silk tunic

Another example of multiple techniques combined in one piece - hand-printing, hand-painting, distressing, appliqué, mixed fabrics, and more! This tunic evokes summer moods - here you see a piece of bright sky, there - a bit of sunshine, complete with an abstract subtle bird image and wave-like hand-textured silk accents on the cuffs. Aqua, teal, blue and purple are a harmonious combination in this comfortable throw-on-and-go piece. Wear it with jeans, pants, long skirts and over dresses. Product code: M2463

Hand wash or spot 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.
