FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 100% Hanky Linen (Handkerchief Weight Linen)

Linen textiles appear to be some of the oldest in the world, where examples found in Europe and Africa date back thousands of years old. For centuries linen has often been associated with wealth since it was mainly used by the upper classes of society. Linen is a bast fiber, made from the fibers of the flax plant, and it is labor-intensive to manufacture, thus produced in relatively small quantities. When fabricated, it is highly valued for its’ smooth texture, organic natural luster, and exceptional coolness in hot weather. A very durable and strong fabric, linen is one of the few that is stronger wet than dry, and it has no lint or pilling tendency. Nevertheless, the tendency to wrinkle is often considered part of the fabric’s “charm”, including its’ random “slubs” (small knots) that provide the aesthetic appeal of a natural product.

This premium Handkerchief Weight Linen is lightweight, semi-sheer and gets softer the more it is washed. Hanky Linen is also highly absorbent, which makes for an ideal garment in keeping the wearer cool and comfortable.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash warm with like colors (preferably on gentle cycle) and with mild detergent (do not use bleach, and do not pour fabric softener directly on garment). Tumble dry low, or line dry, or air dry on a good non-absorbent hanger. Warm, steam iron. Dry clean OK.

Note: This Hanky Linen fabric is semi-sheer where an undergarment might be necessary to reduce the transparent character of the weave. Also, actual colors may vary slightly due to your screen.

THE STORY

Well appointed wardrobes always seem to find room for comfortable, sensibly styled woven tops. Such is our Dena Loving Blouse, which was crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly Handkerchief Weight Linen chosen for long wearing comfort, durability and minimal care. Design elements used in this silhouette reach back to the “chemise moderne” styles of the early 20th century chiefly known for their minimal aesthetic. Our full bodied rendition here affords an elegant look with clean lines to help express your own personal sense of style.

Our classic Loving Blouse features a traditional point collar with a triple stitched button down front. Full length sleeves end with buttoned square cuffs. For a stylish look the sleeves can also be rolled back toward the elbow and fastened with a buttoning tab. A full bodied fit with very rich draping offers long wearing comfort. The round bottom hem falls to the hips, has side slits, and the backside is fashionably longer than the front. Subtle stitching throughout the blouse complements the uncomplicated design of this wardrobe staple. Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile piece that pairs well pants, leggings, and designer jeans. This top is perfect for traveling, smart looking for the office and would make a lovely addition to your weekend wardrobe.

This Tianello natural fibered Linen blouse was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.
