FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 100% Silk 12MM Crêpe de Chine

Silk has been renowned for centuries as a valuable and luxurious commodity, often associated with wealth and status. The strongest of natural fibers, silk retains its shape, drapes well, caresses the figure, and because of its high absorbency, it is easily garment dyed in a variety of deep colors. This 100% Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine is woven to have a supple, organic feel, unlike many fabrics woven with synthetic fibers. With a 12 mommes weight factor, our Eco-friendly silk of choice is lightweight but is suitable for sewing into many body styles designed for women's silk 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, or line dry (use non-absorbent hanger). Warm, steam iron (silk setting). Dry Clean OK.

Note: Actual colors may vary slightly due to your screen.

THE STORY

It’s truly marvelous how color and beautiful print artistry can elevate simply designed tops. Such is our woven Bhakti Melane Blouse, which was crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly 100% Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for softness, luxurious draping, and long wearing comfort. Attention is drawn to a captivating “batik motif” print (which we call "Bhakti") to help express your personal sense of style. With easy care in mind, the "washable silk” fabric selected for this garment makes it a sensible fashion investment.

Our sleeveless Melane Blouse features a round band collar that flows into V-shaped neckline. The button down front is twin stitched for reinforcement. The round bottom hem falls to the hips and is fashionably lower on the backside. The yoke is finished with a wide, centered box pleat. There is subtle single-needle stitching throughout which supports the elegant styling of this loose fitting silhouette. Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile top, which pairs easily with pants, leggings and designer jeans. This body style makes for a wonderful companion piece to your travel and weekend wardrobes.

Our mesmerizing Bhakti 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 features a layered floral landscape with overprinted scrollwork designs. This synergy of opulent print artistry and functional apparel design wonderfully complements the rich draping of our premium Silk Crêpe de Chine.

This Tianello natural fibered, eco-friendly, 100% Washable Silk garment was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.
