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 (using a non-absorbent hanger). Warm, steam iron (silk setting). Dry Clean OK.

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

THE STORY

Well appointed wardrobes would not be complete without beautiful silk blouses. Consider then, our woven Bijou Kai Kimono, which was crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly, 100% Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for its lightweight elegance, long wearing comfort, and minimal care This vogue silhouette draws inspiration from chic iconic capes and robes of yesteryear known for their fashion flair. Attention is drawn to an alluring “floral mandala motif” print (which we call "Bijou") which offers a casual, but refined look to help express your own personal sense of style. With easy care in mind, the "washable silk” fabric selected for this garment makes it a sensible fashion investment.

Our pieced Kai Kimono is inspired by the loose fitting, buttonless “haori kimono” silhouette where the length to the bottom hem is shortened to the upper thighs (versus a full length traditional kimono robe where the bottom hem extends to the floor and beyond the feet). Our rendition here features an unstructured front opening that sweeps downward into long points, thus creating a stylish "cascading" drape effect. The peplum piecing is rounded on the backside and there are subtle long darts to the torso toward the lower back. The ¾ length set-in sleeves have trumpet styled arm openings which are cut to provide a fluttering effect. Subtle, single needle stitching throughout captures an elegance that well dressed women desire. This versatile, garment-dyed top is perfect for layering over a coordinating tank dress or sleeveless blouse, making it a smart addition to any thoughtfully planned wardrobe.

Our mesmerizing Bijou woven fabric print features a mélange of stylized floral mandalas, floral cartouches, and scrolling vinery, all rendered in contemporary artistry, and layered here as an overprint element to the fabric landscape. The background consists of a muted floral Curly-Q trellis design, in pattern repeat. The middle print layer depicts a trio of stylized Lily bouquets, also in pattern repeat. The color diffusion throughout the print provides a dreamlike effect to the overall complexion of the fabric. This synergy of colors and sublime imagery wonderfully enhances the rich draping of our Silk Crêpe de Chine.

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

Beautiful item. However,while I used to be able to wear your clothing,I no longer can. Your sizes have changed,and are much smaller. This item in a med. would fit a small child. I have many of your items,and sizes are from small to large. Not good!! (I by the way have not changed size). Wish it would have worked
