FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 50% Cotton / 50% Polyester

For centuries Cotton has been renowned as being the principal clothing fiber of the world, and its’ production is one of the most influential factors in world prosperity and economic stability. A medium strength natural plant fiber, Cotton is cool, absorbent, and can withstand high temperatures. When fabricated, Cotton releases perspiration quickly, allowing the fabric to “breathe”, thus giving it a premium on comfort and wearability. Because of its’ absorbency, it is easily garment dyed.

The most common fibers used for industrial knitted fabrics are cotton. Our Eco-friendly Cotton Jersey Burnout is lightweight, it drapes beautifully on the body, and it has just enough stretch across the grain for added comfort and wearing ease. This quality fabric features a stylish burnout design that provides a soft textured surface with a subtle semi sheer effect, and it is suitable for sewing into many apparel body styles fashioned for women's clothing.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash warm with like colors, and with mild detergent (do not use bleach, and do not pour fabric softener directly on garment). Tumble dry low. Warm, steam iron.

THE STORY

Our Bhakti Knit Jersey Devon Tunic was designed using a Cotton Blend Burnout fabric chosen for long wearing comfort and minimal care. With costume origins from traditional ballet corps in Europe during the early 1800’s, the elegant tunic design of this silhouette has enjoyed decades of popularity among women of all ages. The refined burnout texture adds a semi sheer and fashionable touch to support the soft hand of the fabric. Attention is drawn to a captivating “batik motif” print (which we call "Bhakti") to help express your personal sense of style.

Our pullover Devon tunic top features a band V-neck that is reinforced with backside facing for extra durability. The ¾ length sleeves are finished with simple fold-over hems. A form fitting drape sweeps downward from the shoulders to a bottom hemline that falls to the upper thighs. This is a dual frame silhouette in that there are two tunic frames sewn together to create one top. The major difference between the two is that the inside tunic has a squared bottom hem, whereas the outside tunic hemline has an enlarged handkerchief point to the front left leg and another to the hind right leg. This asymmetrical styling offers subtle, but chic fashion appeal. Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile silhouette that pairs easily with pants, leggings and designer jeans. Perfect for travel, work or play, this tunic body style makes for a smart investment to any well planned wardrobe.

Our mesmerizing Bhakti knit fabric print draws inspiration from the ancient art form of resist dyeing, commonly known as “batik”. Dating back to 4th Century BC Egypt, this technique was also practiced in Asia, Africa and Australia, but has since been highly developed in Indonesia. Batik is prized for its intricate patterns and almost endless color palette. Our “Bhakti” rendition here offers seductive visual appeal provided by the interplay of dual design artistry embodied in this knit fabric. The primary element here is an overprint mélange of wildflowers amidst scrollwork designs, in pattern repeat. The secondary element is the burnout netting rendered with a “paisley motif” design which provides soft textured, semi-sheer appeal. This superb visual effort wonderfully enhances the soft feel of our premium Knit Jersey fabric.

This Tianello Cotton Blend knit garment was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.
