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, or air 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

Luxurious silk blouses render a veil of refinement like nothing else in your wardrobe. Such is our woven Meswa Avlyne Blouse, 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. Attention is drawn to our richly hued, “Ikat motif” print (called "Meswa") 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 simple turned-over hems. 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.

The name “Meswa” has Persian, Hindi, East European, Sub-Saharan and Native American origins, all with different meanings. Our Meswa graphic print here seems to embody design influences from all of these cultures, as seen in the collage of patterns imprinted on the fabric. But the primary style element in this print features ancient “Ikat” imagery shown in several stylized renditions. Ikat fabrics are possibly the oldest known patterned textiles in the world, originating in Central Asian cultures and have since been adopted by Westerners for elaborate textile designing. Textile histories show that the finest Ikat fabrics were once used as a form of currency on the fabled Silk Road from China to Europe.

Our Meswa print also showcases a marvelous “blurring effect” to the collage, creating diffused “watercolor inspired” artistry that gives a dreamlike quality to the overall complexion of the fabric. This synergy of colors and beguiling patterns wonderfully complements the supple drape of our luxe Silk Crêpe de Chine.

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