FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 100% Silk 12MM Crêpe de Chine
Print Name; "BHAKTI"
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.

THE STORY

Luxurious silk print tops echo a sense of refinement like nothing else in a well appointed wardrobe. Consider then, our woven Bhakti Devesa Blouse, which was designed using natural fibered, eco-friendly, 100% Washable Silk Crêpe de Chine chosen for lightweight elegance, softness, and minimal care. Attention is drawn to a captivating “batik motif” print, which we call "Bhakti", 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.

Our Devesa Blouse features a wide spread notched collar that creates a sophisticated V-neckline, which also flows into a twin-stitched button down front. Long flattering darts shape the waist and flare at the hips, giving this fitted body style a somewhat tailored look. The ¾ length "Juliet sleeves" are finished with stylish "bell shaped” arm openings. Luxe draping flows downward from the shoulders to a hip-length, round bottom hem. Garment dyed richness also adds distinctive character to this versatile silhouette, which pairs easily with pants, leggings and designer jeans. This blouse is perfect for traveling, smart looking for the office, and would make a wonderful addition to your weekend wardrobe.

Our mesmerizing Bhakti fabric print draws inspiration from the ancient art form of resist dyeing, commonly known as “batik”. Dating back to 4th Century BC Egypt, this technique was also practiced in Asia, Africa and Australia, but has since been highly developed in Indonesia. Batik is prized for its intricate patterns and almost endless color palette. Our Bhakti rendition here features a layered floral landscape with overprinted scrollwork designs. This synergy of opulent print artistry and functional apparel design wonderfully complements the elegant drape of our premium 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.
