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

Carefully appointed wardrobes would not be complete without beautiful silk blouses. Consider then, our woven Havemore 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 a quilt motif print (called “Havemore”) 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. For the wearer and admirer alike, this lovely silk print top gracefully balances sublime fabric print artistry with feminine appeal.

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 Havemore fabric print brings together several design elements in a quilt-like composition. The primary element is a pattern repeat of three joined tapestry designs, all of which have origins in Indonesia, Persia and India. The second element is a tie-dye swathe of a neural pattern, in random placement. The third element is a swathe of an amoeba pattern, again in random placement. The synergy of these very different design elements in muted hues wonderfully enhances the luxurious draping of our premium 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.
