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.

Our sublime Quito fabric print draws inspiration from Inca stone architecture found at the World Cultural Heritage Site, which is also the highest capital city in the world, flanked by several Andes volcanoes that are part of the Pacific "Ring of Fire". Named after the pre-Columbian "Quitu" tribe, Quito is also the closest capital city to the equator, about a half mile from zero latitude. Quito is within an historic region that is home of the architectural aesthetic known as the "wayrona style", and "ashlar" which is the use of polished, precise cut dry-stones for walls and monuments. 

Design elements of our print here include linear strokes reminiscent of the steep slopes of the Andes Mountains, triangular shapes drawn in the "wayrona style", stylized Inca symbols, and a mélange of oblong blocks that were typical in Inca artistry. This synergy of colors and heritage designs beautifully complements the sumptuous 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.
