'tropical paradise' mulberry silk maxi dress

So incredibly pleasant to wear and such beautiful colors! This Italian mulberry silk is wonderfully soft, easy care (washable), and features a strikingly beautiful, very spring-and-summer-y look and feel. Dress is down easily with a casual purse and chunky sandals, or dress it up for other occasions if you want. These colors combine beautifully with black and white, so either in those for a jacket and purse will work well. Swings around like only silk can as you walk, caught by your movement and air. Bias front cut will follow your figure beautifully. If you need it to be shorter or longer, just ask - always a possibility. Large front pocket with signature hanging pieces will keep a few lightweight things in, too. Product code: R1272

Hand wash.

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.
