FABRIC & CARE

FABRIC CONTENTS: 100% Linen Voile

Linen textiles appear to be some of the oldest in the world, where examples found in Europe and Africa date back thousands of years old. For centuries linen has often been associated with wealth since it was mainly used by the upper classes of society. Linen is a bast fiber, made from the fibers of the flax plant, and it is labor-intensive to manufacture, thus produced in relatively small quantities. When fabricated, it is highly valued for its’ smooth texture, organic natural luster, and exceptional coolness in hot weather. A very durable and strong fabric, linen is one of the few that is stronger wet than dry, and it has no lint or pilling tendency. Nevertheless, the tendency to wrinkle is often considered part of the fabric’s “charm”, including its’ random “slubs” (small knots) that provide the aesthetic appeal of a natural product.

This premium Linen Voile is lightweight, semi-sheer and gets softer the more it is washed. Linen Voile is also highly absorbent, which makes for an ideal garment in keeping the wearer cool and comfortable.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash warm with like colors (preferably on gentle cycle) 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 on a good non-absorbent hanger. Warm, steam iron. Dry clean OK.

Note: This Linen Voile fabric is semi-sheer where an undergarment might be necessary to reduce the transparent character of the weave. Also, actual colors may vary slightly due to your screen.

THE STORY

Thoughtfully planned wardrobes always seem to find room for comfortable, sensibly styled Linen tops. Consider then, our Xander Avlyne Blouse, which was crafted using a natural fibered, eco-friendly Linen Voile fabric chosen for long wearing comfort, durability and minimal care. Design elements used in this silhouette reach back to the “chemise moderne” styles of the early 20th century chiefly known for their minimal aesthetic. Our loose fitting rendition here affords an elegant look with clean lines to help express your own personal sense of style. Attention is drawn to a captivating Modernist motif print which offers sublime visual appeal for the wearer and admirer alike.

Our pullover Avlyne Blouse features a round neckline with a “split front” V-neck placket that is reinforced with triple-stitched detail. The round bottom hem falls well below the waistline and is fashionably longer on the backside. Full length sleeves are finished with a simple turn-under hem. For a stylish look the sleeves can also be rolled back toward the elbow and fastened with a buttoning tab. Additional design elements include a comfortable loose fitting frame, and subtle single needle stitching throughout the blouse.

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 Xander fabric print features Modernist inspired artistry which dominated the avant-garde art scene in the early 1900’s, most notably in Europe. The primary element here is a Three-quarter Orb outline, shown in three sizes each in their own random groupings. The secondary element is an overprint grouping of colorful ink blotches rendered in a water-color motif, and in pattern repeat. This synergy of colors and lovely Modernist patterns superbly enhances the luxurious hand of our premium Linen Voile fabric.

This Tianello natural fibered Linen blouse was designed, developed and proudly Made In The USA using premium imported fabric.
