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

"Enchanting fabric print artistry" helps define our Quito Vanna Blouse, which was fashioned using natural fibered, eco-friendly, 100% Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for its lightweight elegance, long wearing comfort, and minimal care. Full-bodied styling here renders a womanly flair that is very stylish, and the cut provides long wearing comfort. Attention is drawn to a mesmerizing, richly hued “Inca motif” print (called “Quito) 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 Vanna Blouse displays a refined quality that is afforded by a soft and generous drape that is flattering to the body and transitions with body movement. The curved V-neckline is reinforced with twin stitching on the inside band. The ¾ length bell sleeves are flared and shirred at the shoulders. The loose fitting frame sports a slight A-line cut that finishes with a hip-length, squared bottom hem. Subtle single needle stitching throughout the garment captures an elegance that well dressed women truly appreciate. This versatile blouse pairs well with knit pants, leggings and designer jeans, making it a wonderful choice for travel, work or play.

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