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). Tumble dry low, or line dry. Warm, steam iron (silk setting). Dry Clean OK.

THE STORY

Luxurious silk blouses echo a sense of refinement like nothing else in a well appointed wardrobe. Consider then, our woven Jules Natalie Blouse, which was crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly, Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for softness, durability and minimal care. Attention is drawn to a captivating “Modernist motif” print, which we call "Jules", 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 beautiful silk print top gracefully balances sublime fabric print artistry with feminine appeal.

Our pullover Natalie Blouse features a round neckline finished with a simple fold-over hem. Generous elbow length bell sleeves have "tulip" style arm openings that are cut inward at an angle (thus the elbows are covered). The sumptuous drape flows downward to an arched bottom hem that has fashionable handkerchief points to the sides of the hips. Subtle single-needle stitching throughout, coupled with a comfortable full-bodied fit, provides a fashion sensibility that is both flattering and sophisticated. This versatile, garment-dyed silhouette pairs well with pants, leggings and designer jeans, making it perfect for travel, work, or play.

Our gorgeous “Jules” fabric print draws inspiration from the works of avant-garde artists of the early 1900’s when modernism became defined as an historical art movement. These “Modernists” challenged the traditional conventions of representation, breaking away from naturalist styles of painting and sculpture, and exploring non-conforming shapes, colors, lighting and materials. There are close relationships between Modern Art and Contemporary Art, but many professional sources consider restricting the Contemporary to works from the year 2000 onwards. The force behind this distinction stems from the idea that Contemporary Art challenges the “very notion of an art piece”, rather than scrutinizing its physical components.

Our Jules print here features two modern styles of visuals. The first element is a background of ink scribbling of geometric shapes and lines. The second element is an overprint of circle orbs, in pattern repeat. The synergy of these two patterns afford a modern personality to the fabric, which wonderfully enhances the luxe drape of our supple Silk Crêpe de Chine fabric.

This Tianello natural fibered 100% Washable Silk Blouse was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.
