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 iron (silk setting). Dry Clean OK.

THE STORY

Luxurious silk blouses render a veil of refinement like nothing else in your wardrobe. Such is our woven Medina Avlyne Blouse, which was crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly, Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for its lightweight elegance, long wearing comfort, and minimal care. Attention is drawn to a richly hued “paisley motif” print, which we call " Medina ", to help express your 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 pullover Avlyne Blouse features a round neckline with a “split front” V-neck placket that is reinforced with triple-stitched detail. The round bottom hem falls well below the waistline and is fashionably longer on the backside. Full length sleeves are finished with a simple turn-under hem. For a stylish look the sleeves can also be rolled back toward the elbow and fastened with a buttoning tab. Additional design elements include a comfortable loose fitting frame, and subtle single needle stitching throughout the blouse.

Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile top that pairs well with pants, leggings, or your favorite designer jeans. This flattering silhouette is perfect for traveling, smart looking for the office and would make a lovely addition to your weekend wardrobe.

Our mesmerizing Medina fabric print features the renowned “paisley”. This imagery draws inspiration from Persian botanical shawl patterns made popular by European textile manufactures since the early 1600’s, and especially from the town of Paisley in central Scotland, from which the fabric pattern takes its’ modern name. Origins of the exotic floral motif reach back to ancient Babylonian waterdrop symbols of a date palm shoot, later stylized into elongated curved shapes by Kashmir artisans. Our Medina print here showcases a mélange of stylized paisleys rendered in “watercolor motif” impressionist artistry, and in pattern repeat. This superb fabric print wonderfully enhances the elegant drape of our sumptuous Silk Crêpe de Chine.

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