'through summer roads' lightweight painted jacket

Hard to think of a more perfect traveling piece! This kaftan length jacket is lightweight, crisp, very wrinkle resistant and has just enough detail to make it stand out as a pure chic handmade art piece to wear. Made out of long-staple cotton, which has amazing breathability and crispiness to it, it has been hand-painted in an intricate pattern with soft distressed cordovan, or burnt Sienna, over white. Part of the mille-feuille collection, it has just a few 'sheets' added here and there for a 3D Touch, enough to blend in with the beautiful pattern. Currently it doesn't have a closure but it can be added at no extra cost upon request. A pocket can also be added if needed, at no additional cost. Normally both features are staples in the artist's clothing, but for this one she wanted a clean, crisp look. Product code: L0054

Hand wash briefly, cold, minimal detergent, drier OK, pre-shrunk.

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.
