FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 45% Cotton / 45% Rayon/8% Spandex

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 wear ability. Because of its’ absorbency, it is easily garment dyed.

The most common fibers used for industrial knitted fabrics are cotton. These knit fabrics provide form-fitted styling since their elasticity permits them to follow the body’s curvature. Our Cotton Blend Knit Jersey here has a soft-textured hand, it drapes beautifully on the body (affording long wearing comfort), is easy to care for, and it is also wonderfully wrinkle resistant. This fabric is also suitable for manufacturing into a variety of body styles designed for women's knit apparel.

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 (if needed). Dry Clean OK.

THE STORY

Flattering knit tops become wardrobe favorites quickly. Consider then, our Fontaine Knit Jersey Jacquard Leyton Tunic, which was crafted using a premium Cotton & Rayon Blend fabric chosen for long wearing comfort, rich draping 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. Attention is drawn here to the marvelously soft textured “puffed stripe” jacquard pattern (which we call “Fontaine”) that serves as a style element as well as a visual statement.

Our pullover Leyton Tunic Top features a band V-neck, ¾ length sleeves, and fitted draping. The thigh length bottom hem has a slightly rounded backside, which is also fashionably longer than the front. Subtle stitching throughout enhances the fashion simplicity of this comfort styled top. 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 thoughtfully planned wardrobe.

Our contemporary “Fontaine” knit jacquard here doubles as a design element and provides added visual interest. This jacquard weave features an intriguing alternating stripe design where the weaving creates a somewhat “puffed” effect to the overall complexion of the fabric. This superb weaving artistry beautifully complements the soft-textured feel of our premium Knit Jersey fabric.

This Tianello natural fibered, eco-friendly Cotton & Rayon Blend knit garment was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.
