textured black flowy silk tunic

There is a bit of history in this one - the surged ridges fabric that you see is something that the artist used to do years back, and while moving the studio, she found one large piece prepared for sewing that somehow fell through the cracks! It was perfect for this breathable (the body is very fine silk habotai) yet beautifully drapey tunic that you see which came to be as a result. It is lightweight in concept but has a bit of extra weight to it because of the mixed silks on the bottom. Comfortable and soft to the touch, it features a flattering A-line, mixed fabrics, and a fun pocket that blends with the bottom. An insert of distressed silk knit provide a bit of give for the chest. An easy choice for any occasion and any outfit, including lagenlook layering styles. Product code: K0812

Hand wash or gentle 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.
