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 (use non-absorbent hanger). Warm, steam iron (silk setting). Dry clean OK.

Note: Actual colors may vary slightly due to your screen.

THE STORY

Luxurious printed silk tops echo a sense of opulence like nothing else in a well appointed wardrobe. Consider then, our woven Meswa Briata Cowl Tank Tunic, which was designed using natural fibered, eco-friendly, 100% Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for lightweight elegance, durability, 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 chosen for this garment makes it a sensible fashion investment. This lovely silk print top gracefully balances sublime fabric artistry with feminine appeal.

Our sleeveless, pullover Briata Cowl Tank Tunic features a slim cowl neck with a soft fold. The hip length bottom hem is generously arched in the front, and the back side is slightly rounded but fashionably longer. A loose fitting frame provides long wearing comfort. Subtle single-needle stitching throughout the top enhances the fashion simplicity of this tunic silhouette. Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile piece that pairs well with pants, leggings, or your favorite designer jeans. For travel, work or play, this eye catching top will engage admirers everywhere, making it a wonderful addition to any fashion smart 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, 100% Washable Silk garment was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.
