FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 100% Linen Voile

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 Linen Voile is lightweight, semi-sheer and gets softer the more it is washed. Linen Voile 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 Linen Voile fabric is slightly 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 Linen tops. Consider then, our woven Estee Aida Blouse, which was crafted using a natural fibered, eco-friendly Linen Voile fabric 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 loose fitting rendition here affords an elegant look with clean lines to help express your own personal sense of style. Attention is drawn to a “naïve floral motif” print (which we call "Estee") which offers alluring visual appeal for the wearer and admirer alike.

Our Aida Blouse features a notched lapel point collar that sweeps into a twin-stitched button down front. Elegant draping flowing to the square bottom hemline flatters the torso, giving this full bodied style a classic, almost seasonless look. Fashionable side slits afford subtle flare to the hips. Three-quarter length sleeves flow into buttoned French square cuffs. There is subtle single-needle stitching throughout the blouse. Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile silhouette which pairs easily with pants, leggings, or your favorite designer jeans. This comfort styled top is perfect for traveling, smart looking for the office and would make a lovely addition to your weekend wardrobe.

Our charming Estee fabric print showcases a fine example of layered print artistry. The primary design element is a background mélange of stylized Dianthus, Impatiens, Geranium and Passion Fruit flowers, all rendered in a naïve style. The second element is an overprint of the same flowers amidst swaths of watercolor-like clouds and geometric designs. This synergy of superb print imagery and functional apparel design wonderfully enhances the luxurious hand of our premium Linen Voile fabric.

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

Note: This Linen Voile fabric is slightly 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.
