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

Floral print tops are as perennial as the flowers themselves. Consider then, our woven Roma Loving Blouse, which we have crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for softness, long wearing comfort and minimal care. Attention is drawn to a captivating “Victorian floral motif” print, which we call "Roma", 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. This lovely silk print top gracefully balances sublime fabric artistry with feminine appeal.

Our classic Loving Blouse features a traditional point collar with a triple stitched button down front. Full length sleeves end with buttoned square cuffs. For a stylish look the sleeves can also be rolled back toward the elbow and fastened with a buttoning tab. A full bodied fit with sumptuous draping offers long wearing comfort. The round bottom hem falls to the hips, has side slits, and the backside is fashionably longer than the front. Subtle stitching throughout the blouse complements the uncomplicated design of this wardrobe staple.

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 gorgeous Roma fabric print draws inspiration from classical floral designs of the Victorian era during the early 1900’s. This was a time of brief return to romanticism in all art forms, including architecture, residential décor, and apparel. This was also a period where floral designs became more lavish, and utilized in excess. Floral patterns were often realistic and often combined to create a mélange of diverse species, thus imitating the contrived cottage gardens that were in vogue at that time.

Our Roma print here features a collage of exotic cottage flowers, in pattern repeat, including Passion Fruit flowers, buds of the Alexander Magnolia, wild Forest Dahlia’s in full bloom, and Acanthus vinery. There are also floral-inspired mandalas which appear to be floating among the foliage. This synergy of opulent print artistry and feminine apparel design beautifully enhances the elegant drape of our luxe 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.
