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. Warm, steam iron (silk setting). Dry clean OK.

THE STORY

Luxurious silk blouses echo a sense of refinement like nothing else in a well appointed wardrobe. Consider then, our woven Roma Natalie Blouse, which was crafted using natural fibered, eco-friendly, Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for softness, durability 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 pullover Natalie Blouse features a round neckline finished with a simple fold-over hem. Generous elbow length bell sleeves have "tulip" style arm openings that are cut inward at an angle (thus the elbows are covered). The sumptuous drape flows downward to an arched bottom hem that has fashionable handkerchief points to the sides of the hips. Subtle single-needle stitching throughout, coupled with a comfortable full-bodied fit, provides a fashion sensibility that is both flattering and sophisticated. This versatile, garment-dyed silhouette pairs well with pants, leggings and designer jeans, making it perfect for travel, work, or play.

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.
