'a pocket of sunshine' sculptural loose-fitting layering silk top or vest, necklace and top

A truly sophisticated piece that has been meticulously hand-crafted out of two types of silk, which have been painted by hand with the use of different techniques: shibori for the main body and freehand for organza sides. Tent-like silhouette makes it a perfect layering piece over dresses and tops, and nothing will beat it in comfort and breeziness if worn by itself in summer! Other features include signature overlay and textured embroidery. A true piece of art that is easy to wear. Product code: E7471

Brief 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.
