vintage cotton moire distressed textural indigo vest

The texture of this very rarely found cotton moire fabric is amazing - the little 'ridges' throughout give it such a three-dimensional look and feel, which has been enhanced by a subtle distressing in the shades of mint and purple over indigo. A row of gorgeous similarly textured buttons enables you to button it up all the way up, or any step in between. Asymmetrical large collar can be stood up for more drama or folded over. Extra large pocket can probably replace your purse! Generous A-line, flattering and fun. Meant either as oversized piece (has extra large arm holes too) or can be more true to size as well. Shown on two heights here, 5'2" and 5'5". Product code: Y5099

Hand wash or gentle dry clean.

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.
